It's hot. No. I don't think you understand. It's hot and humid and I'm sweaty. Everywhere. So you can imagine my delight when I heard that there is anti-stink and wetness protection underwear in the works.
It's true. They just tested it out on the space shuttle.
And here I thought they were only working on the space station and doing other astronaut-y stuff.
AOL reported that on the recent space shuttle mission, one of Stefanie Wakata's experiments was "wearing a new type of anti-bacterial, water-absorbent, odor-eliminating underwear provided by Japanese researchers."
He wore the undies for about a month and said, "My station crew members never complained...so I think the experiment went fine."
The company who makes them is called J-Wear, and they also produce shirts, pants, and socks that are anti-static, flame retardant, and seamless.
No word on when they will expand the line for consumers, but I would definitely try out a pair!
What do you think of this invention?
