Technology studio Chaotic R&D has designed a pair of pants called the Notifly that will text you when you’ve forgotten to zip your fly.

The pants uses electronic fabric and thread that has the capacity to recognize when your zipper is up or down. The pants button functions as an on/off switch for the sensory technology: When your zipper’s left gaping, you get a message on your phone to alert you. The cheeky (and useful!) piece of wearable technology is also a great demonstration of Invisible UI: There are no settings to toy with or conspicuous signs that you’re wearing a pair of technologically enabled pants.
