Now Your Golf Shirt Can Tell You The Weather, Among Other Awesome Things

Samsung C&T has developed a new Smart Shirt with its golf brand Bean Pole, that can tell you the weather and the UV rating of where you are.


The Smart Shirt was introduced at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas on Wednesday. It comes with a near-field communication (NFC) chip that relays information to your smart phone.

This Smart Shirt is a part of Samsung’s wearable technology that started with the Smart Suit.

“The Smart Suit has NFC in the wrist to do things like unlock your phone when you take it out of your pocket or let you exchange business cards digitally. You can also set different modes on your phone, like Office Mode and Drive Mode,” Shara Tipken of CNET wrote.


The features from the Smart Suit will be included in the Smart Shirt, along with telling you the weather and UV ratings. You’re not going to want to take this golf shirt off after 18 holes!

Thanks smart people from Samsung! We’ll just be waiting here for these shirts to come out like..
