It is designed to provide privacy while you work on your computer in public places and it keeps your ears warm at the same time! I would like to see one of these worn with a Snuggie over it, that would be awesome! It is one of many hand-knitted inventions known as "Body-Technology Interfaces". More can be seen at sternlab.org, but I will post a few of my favorites:
Cell Phone Ski Mask - This would be a good thing for all of the parents who take their kids to school in the morning. Many of them seem to have a phone permanently attached to their ear anyway.The Keyboard Kozy - Now, this looks ridiculous, but my hands are always cold and I think it kind of makes sense. Besides, anyone with decent keyboarding skills should be able to type without looking at the keys, right?
Ski Mask for Eating a Sandwich - This is SO funny looking! Completely impractical of course ... unless you are a nose picker and don't want anyone to see.
Wow! I think people have way too much time on their hands!
