The wearer blends into the background! The camouflage system may be available in 2008. *A "clothing server" helps you pick outfits that match for special occasions and even dusts pollen off your jacket if you have allergies. *Vitamin C T-Shirts: Once you put it on Vitamin C rubs into your skin and gives you your daily Vitamin C dose.
