I put on my Technomage Hoodie and wizard hat
The website ThinkGeek has an excellent tradition of making amazing products that are April Fool’s jokes, and later turning them into tangible things you can buy. In 2012, they created a very awesome, but very fake hoodie that had light-up and sound effects perfect for those who like role playing games, or just to look snazzy on the dance floor. It was all just a joke, until now.
The Technomage Digital Wizard Hoodie is a sweater that will let you cast spells, each with their own light pattern and sounds. Of course, it’s not just a matter of wiggling your fingers and saying ‘hocus pocus’. There are intricate motions you need to do for each spell, and it will take some time to get them down pat. That being said, this may not be a good purchase for those who can’t master timed movements.
This is made out of cotton, and needs 6 AA batteries to function. While it is machine washable, you will want to remove all of the electronics before you stick it in with water and soap. It’s available in sizes small to a XXL. After each spell you’ll need to put your arms in the ‘restore mana’ position. It is capable of 9 spells, including electroshock, thunderbolt, restore health, fireball, shockwave, energy beam, raise the dead, warp, water bending, and color casting. I desperately hope someone hacks this so they can do earth, fire, and air bending too. It will cost you $120, and will certainly be the talk of your gaming group.
Available for purchase on ThinkGeek.
