Hat detects Wi-Fi, repels chance of getting any action

If you're not interested in talking to members of the opposite sex, this hat is for you!

Wi-Fi hat
Not on my head. Think Geek

The headline on this Dvice post about Think Geek's Wi-Fi-detecting hat says the cap will make you "king of the geeks." And maybe it will. But you can have that title, my liege; I'd rather get dates.

Not to say your crown isn't cool, technically it is. I mean, it has a fully functional Wi-Fi detector built in. So while you may never know if you've found decent coverage (unless you're staring into a mirror), at least all the girls around you will know. But since they won't be talking to you, it doesn't really matter.

OK, maybe I'm being a little hard on this thing, but again, I'm not cracking down on the hat, just on those who'd wear it around. It's really just a $14.99 way to advertise, "Look at me, I'm a geek! Ha! Look, geek here!" But if you're the type who'd wear this, I'm fairly sure the Utilikilt and BlackBerry holster would give it away anyway.
