No matter how relaxed and into the Jimmy Buffet lifestyle we are, us guys all gotta end up wearing a tie at least once in a while. Whether it be for a job interview, a wedding or just lounging around looking like a fancypants, ties are a lifelong and semi-integral part of the male experience. However, aside from some cheeky new designs, the general function and tenor of the humble necktie hasn’t changed in decades. Why can’t ties experience the mirth and wonderment of the wearable tech revolution as well? Well, don’t worry guys, now they can. Introducing the, uh, QR Tie.
This tie, as the name suggests, is embedded with a QR code that is printed on the back. These high quality, hand assembled neckties offer style, in that they feel and look like cool ties, and function, in that you can personalize your very own QR code to do whatever it is you want it to do. Now instead of handing out business cards, you can show off the back of your tie as prospective employers scramble to get a good cell phone picture of it. As stated, you can redirect the code wherever you want. Send them to your professional website, personal website or even your eBay account website. Let’s confuse the heck out of them!
These ties aren’t out yet so, for now, you’ll have to just glue your own QR codes on the back of your tie collection one by one. That’ll take a while. The designers of said tie have taken to Kickstarter in order to raise funds for completion of their handy, dandy necktie. You can snag your own by plunking down $25. Also, in case you were wondering, they do offer a variety of styles.
