DP you are getting far too sensible in your old age. I bet someone said the same thing about T-shirts with printed messages on when they first came out. ;)
wow, i wonder will that invention will reduce your life expectancy
I'll get one when I can play videogames on it
1 - If you are wearing the shirt, you're going to have to continually look down at your shirt to play, and this would likely result in a neck injury. You'd be the first to get an injury of this type playing WOW (or whatever).
2 - If you put the shirt on someone else, they'd have to stand still so you could play, which would annoy the snot out them, I'm certain! Also, if the wearer of your screenshirt were to be a busty female, it would distort your perspective and throw off your game, despite being a pleasant distraction.
Now, if the video game display were ont eh back of the shirt, you could have a "daisy chain" of sorts, where each player was looking at the back of another player, forming a continuous circle of gamers.
That would be cool, until one gamer needs a potty break!
Most advertising isn't a direct buy me know type of thing. It's all about getting your name in peoples faces. Then when they see a product with that name on it they are more likely to think I've head of that it must be good.
This is all done in the subconcious
