You've Got To Be Kidding Me
Okay, I hate hijacking a perfectly good blog to highlight some techie, nerdy thing, but this one REALLY needs to come out. Apparently, a solution really needed to be found to circumvent the burka. Even better, they decided on an overly complex, technical solution to this dilly of a dilemna: enter the CharmingBurka (I thought they were all charming?).
Check it out - The kit allows you to add eletronics to the burka that send a "self-defined" picture of the woman beneath to every Bluetooth mobile phone in the vicinity. According to the project's mastermind -- Markus Kison -- no laws of the Koran are broken. Umm, okay. Maybe I'm missing the point.
Seriously, check it out - video on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=13PDuXjWvSE
