New York fashion ran headon into technology geekdom this week at The International Consumer Electonics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. Popular scientist and science communicator Neil DeGrasse Tyson was promoting a new line of wearable electronics developed by the MIT Lab
Tyson modeled a $250,000 beaded and spangled rock star suit with its own personal satellite. The satellite enables the wearer to disambiguate web preservation, integrate computer-assisted intranets, scale interactive sublanguages visualize integrated portals, create architect informatics frameworks, and make Mintos smoothies.
Tyson was demonstrating how to scale interactive sublanguages when a transformer blew and the suit became transparent. Tyson, typically unperturbed, was not amused.
