Technology we deserve
Engineer and designer Guy Dupont has developed smart pants that tell the wearer when their fly is open. A message about this comes to the smartphone.
The system uses a Hall sensor and a powerful magnet. The sensor is located on the inside, and the magnet is on the clasp. An ESP32 microcontroller is also used, which is placed in a pocket and sends messages to a smartphone.
The current version of smart pants is not waterproof, so after each wash cycle, you have to re-pair the controller with your smartphone. While it is not reported whether the developer will improve his invention, it is also unclear whether he plans to sell the novelty.
The author of the development noted that initially it was a comic idea proposed by his friend, but then it turned into a real project.
