Shirt lights up when love is near

Proximity-based T-shirt lights up when your paramour is near.

The 8-Bit Dynamic Life Shirt: before and after. ThinkGeek

With Valentine's Day just two weeks away, ThinkGeek is stepping to the aid of the gift-challenged with a proximity-based T-shirt that lights up when your paramour is near.

Suffering the aching emptiness and despair of being apart from your loved one? The 8-Bit Dynamic Life Shirt will register a meager two and a half pixelated hearts. But snuggle up to the object of your affection (who, incidentally, must be wearing a matching black and red T-shirt for this display of devotion to work), and all five hearts on both garments light up in a blaze of cheeky romance and bad style.

The shirts--(correction on price: $24.99 will get you one shirt; a transmitter pack is $11.99 extra)--riff on Legend of Zelda characters that die when their red heart gauges hit zero. "You complete me" MP3 not included.
