Would You Wear A “Clap-Off Bra”?

Submitted by on August 6, 2013 – 9:17 amNo Comment

When I was a young girl growing up in the 1980s, I begged my mother to buy The Clapper. For those of you not in the know, The Clapper was an ingenious device that allowed you to turn on and turn off any gadget in your home with two claps of your hands. Back then I thought there was nothing cooler than being able to control a device without even touching it. Today, I am not so sure.

Enter what I believe to be the cheesiest of inventions from American media artist and engineer Randy Sarafan. The author of 62 Projects To Make With A Dead Computer recently created a strapless bra that comes off when you clap which was inspired by the musical, glow-in-the-dark, and other kooky bras he spotted in Syria.

“The first time I read about Syrian Lingerie I was quite moved,” Sarafan confessed. “In the West, we often think of Arab cultures as sexually repressed societies, when, in fact, it turns out that they are clearly leaps and bounds ahead of us in advancements in lingerie technology. Those of us in Western cultures have a thing or two to learn from the Syrians about gaudy electronic lingerie.”

Perhaps to the glee of men everywhere, Sarafan has posted 27-steps for any one to create the bra themselves on DIY site Instructables. “It became my mission to fast-forward lingerie technology in the West,” he said. “I figured the first step in this critical mission was to replicate some of the advancements made in Syria. The article of lingerie that resonated most with my inner sensibilities was the clap-off bra. I immediately resolved to make my own clap-off bra as a springboard into Western lingerie innovation.”

Check out the short demo of this “lingerie innovation” below. Ladies would you wear a clap-off bra? And before you answer, ask yourself: are you attending any concerts, speeches, or sport events where clapping may leave you topless? Hmmm…
