interactive lederhosen

you see a telescopic carbon alphorn

In the upcoming semester Tim is going to teach geometry at the Technical University of Munich so it`s time to get an update on the latest trends in alpine customs, like these interfacing lederhosen (this is an update to this old “wearable computing post“). lederhosen by the way are perfect for high tech gadgets as you can’t wash them. (for that reason even Berlin kids were wearing them in my times…)

another interesting development is the above telescopic carbon alphorn, which is a swiss product but Alphorns are certainly also used in Bavaria. The improved transportability of this kind of Alphorn allows now for an enhanced cultural export. Next step in Alphorn evolution: the electronic Alphorn (or at least the silent Alphorrn for a start).
