Is that a silicone ‘nerve’ bra or are you just happy to see me?

As if men needed any more reasons to stare at women’s tits there’s now a bra you can buy that has embedded color LEDs that light up in different patterns:

This is a difficult piece to describe. Part bra, part sculpture, part social disturbance. As a vague description, we’ll call it the ‘nerve’ bra, but it’s really so much more.

While silicone is usually found inside a bra, we’ve used silicone on the outside as a means of sculpting the light into organic shapes with an underlying geometric pattern. This bra has a lot of LEDs (more than 35 per side), in a full rainbow of colors, with eight different flashing patterns that can be selected by the wearer. The base bra is flesh-colored, encouraging the illusion that the skin is exposed and the light is coming from within the body.

They offer a number of video clips showing off the various patterns to boot. What would be really cool, though, is if it had a little embedded microphone that would make the lights blink on and off in response to the sounds around the person. Could you imaging trying to talk to someone who’s tits flashed every time you said something?

That’s not the only light up clothing they carry. In addition to a selection of other light up bras and camisoles they also offer light up ties and bow ties.

As the folks at Boing Boing point out, I wonder if this bra would get you arrested in Boston?

    And it could change pattern with music type, which would make nights out interesting. Reminds me of those flower shaped things that move depending on music.

    I just had an idea – the bra could be linked to some brain scan device so they can change colour, pattern and intensity depending on mood – would make life easier for guys less good at reading body language

  2. Aaahh meaningful coincidences – I received the following into my inbox this morning.
    It’s wonderful to realise I’m not really lazy.  wink

    An Eyeful a Day Keeps the Doctor Away
    by Jonathan Hayter

    Staring at women’s breasts is good for men’s health and makes them live longer, a new survey reveals.  Researchers have discovered that a 10-minute ogle at women’s breasts is as healthy as half-an-hour in the gym.  A five-year study of 200 men found that those who enjoyed a longing look at busty beauties had lower blood pressure, less heart disease and slower pulse rates compared to those who did not get their daily eyeful.

    Dr Karen Weatherby, who carried out the German study, wrote in The New England Journal of Medicine: “Just 10 minutes of staring at the charms of a well-endowed female is roughly equivalent to a 30-minute aerobics workout.  Sexual excitement gets the heart pumping and improves blood circulation.  There is no question that gazing at breasts makes men healthier.  Our study indicates that engaging in this activity a few minutes daily cuts the risk of a stroke and heart attack in half.  We believe that by doing so consistently, the average man can extend his life 4 to 5 years.”

    She added that sexy stars like Dolly Parton, Heather Locklear, Anna Nicole Smith and Demi Moore had proved to be especially good for the men’s health.

  3. I’m starting to wish I was a medical researcher gulp

    “Just 10 minutes of staring at the charms of a well-endowed female is roughly equivalent to a 30-minute aerobics workout”

    Well I’m glad I never wasted any time excercising. I’ve been improving my health without that intention!!! Never happened before – usually everything that’s good for you tends to be a a lot of hard work and only temporary, so why ruin the young part only to extend old age was always my view. I don’t like being commited to something horrible and daily like excercise, yopu may get a longer life, but the fun aspect’s ruined a bit and worry isn’t healthy.

    I’m not sure whether it was the staring that made men laid back, or if being laid back made them stare. I hope women will now know what to do on their part in terms of helping men’s health

  4. Doh! LuckyJohn falls for a classic Urban Legend. It’s one of those too-good-to-be-true things and the tip off should have been the claim that it’s as good for you as a “30-minute aerobics workout.”

    Still, don’t just take my word for it.

  5. Man, what an incorrigible party-pooper you are, Les.  Besides, who needs the New England Journal of Medicine?  Some things you just know are good for you…

  6. It’s one of those too-good-to-be-true things and the tip off should have been the claim that it’s as good for you as a “30-minute aerobics workout.”

    Damn. I’ll have to keep laughing at myself.
    I’ve heard that’s good for me too.  LOL

  7. Words of wisdom, LJ.  Being able to laugh at oneself is not only good for you; it’s good for everyone around you too.

  8. as good for you as a “30-minute aerobics workout.”

    I essentially do a 30 minute aerobics workout when I see the well-endowed female
    Ok – maybe 3 minutes smile

  9. Your suggestion about the microphone reminded me of the T-qualizer shirt being sold at thinkgeek.com. I wonder if one could mod the bra to do such a thing.
