You Know What I Think Would Be Cool?

I think it would be cool, if there were a wrist watch that could scan/photo things and use that image as the background for the watch face. Then, you could have your own face as the face on your watch! Or you could scan your shirt and then your watch face would match your outfit perfectly!

Take it a step further. I think it would be cool if you had articles of clothing that could do the same thing, except also allow you to modify the hue/saturation/brightness/contrast on the captured image. Then, you could have a tie with an interesting pattern and a perfect match to the rest of your outfit. Or cufflinks. Or whatever.

Give it another few years. As soon as they perfect this in paper (embeded micro-circuitry in the page will reconfigure the ink), someone will begin to consider your suggestion practically marketable.

Or maybe once they work it out for computer monitors, they'll be able to transfer the LEDs to clothing. ("It" being the use of special LEDs that make a monitor work more like a solid-state device, thus enabling them to be placed in a variety of locations - and with order of magnitude less power consumption. Or so I've heard.)
