New Hoodie Will Update Your Facebook Status On The Go

Meet Ping, a new hoodie that could allow you to poke a friend, accept a friend request, and receive notification alerts, all via a fashionable garment. The hardware-free clothing item, created by entrepreneurial designer Jennifer Darmour, would link wirelessly to your Facebook account.

A potentially forthcoming app would allow the owner to customize gestures among friends. For example, the wearer might feel a tap on the shoulder when a comment is left on their Wall or be able to change a setting when a button is buttoned or zipper zipped.
