The selfie hat is everything wrong with tech (and right with fashion) in one wearable

New, 24 comments

If you thought you had seen if all when it comes to wearable tech, prepare for a very rude awakening.

For London Fashion Week, Acer has collaborated with a designer on what it's calling a Selfie Hat: a bright and sparkling pink hat with a tablet hanging off of it (specifically, Acer's Iconia A1-840). There's also a matching, non-wearable tablet case with a hat on top of it too.

The case is being sold in limited numbers, but the hat is apparently only going on show at a Fashion Week event from its designer, Christian Cowan-Sanluis. The Selfie Hat is actually a riff on an outfit that Cowan-Sanluis made before — the earlier outfit was even worn by Lady Gaga.
