Recently, I wrote two articles on new underwear lines being promoted – fart filtering underwear and anti-radiation underwear. Add to the growing list of these strange new ideas – biodegradable, disposable underwear you make at home.
According to NPR’s Last Word in Business podcast, this idea is the brain child of an Israeli couple who have invented a printer of sorts that, apparently, prints underwear. They also can print bandages and other items.
Can you imagine the shock to the underwear garment industry if we all just started making our own? Hey, that’s not such a bad idea, right?
Not so fast. The machine that prints the underwear costs a mere $3 million dollars. Still, if you’re considering an investment opportunity or new business venture, one machine is capable of printing some 10 million disposable, biodegradable undies. Now ask yourself – How much did you spend on your last pair of underwear or fashion jockstrap?
