The Next Big Thing: Glow Gear


Scott: We have got a Next Big Thing that we are hoping will light you up. But first, let’s take a look at last week’s. We told you about the Nymi, the wristband that uses your heartbeat as a personal password. Now, is this the next big thing?

Sixty-six percent of you said, ‘Yes, the beat is the key.’ But thirty-four percent of you said, ‘No, that beat is a bust.’

And this week, we have got something that you could add to your Halloween costume or just brighten up the night.

Check out these t-shirts from LUM. You can create your own glow-in-the-dark message on them. You take your smartphone’s flash, or any LED, and press it to the shirt and draw. The glow will last about 5 to 15 minutes, so you can change up your message all night long. And you can even press pictures from your smartphone onto the shirt.

The shirts are made from a fabric that is treated with a special kind of paint. And you can still put them in the washer. The shirts run about $25.

So, what do you think? Is LUM Apparel really the next big thing? Well, head to and vote!

      I would really like to have something like that for only 25$! Escpecially if we can change what’s on it ever 5-15 minutes!

      its a good idea but I’d rather have a shirt that lasted an hour or too. Not just for about 15 minutes. its a waste of money and its pointless to have a shirt like that. it might be nice to have and I could be coo, but there’s really no point in it.
