If you like to dress up and look like a right badass, then prepare yourself for a garment of magical powers. Literally. ThinkGeek‘s Technomancer wizard hoodie, which we reported on all the way back in 2013 but is now back in stock, lets you cast nine different spells with hidden accelerometers that sense the movements of your hands, multicolored LED lights, and video game-like sound effects emitted from embedded speakers in the hood and sleeves!
Yes, this is a real thing that you can buy now to start impressing your friends and/or making them collapse into a hysterical fit of laughter.
Yeah, it might take a minute to learn the right sequence of movements to cast each spell, but a handy spell chart is included (they take these things very seriously). And it’s pretty easy. Just move your arms in one of the pre-programmed spell-sequences and the sleeves of the hoodie glow from inside, the internal speaker kicks in, and the hood illuminates your face in a deathly glow. The spells include Fireball, Restore Health, Shockwave, Thunderbolt, Energy Beam, Raise the Dead (my personal favorite), Warp, Water Bending and Electroshock. You can see them in action in the video above.
Um, can you imagine wearing this thing to a rave? Or any themed party? Or any event? You’d be the most wicked belle of the ball!
So what’s the verdict? Are you ready to run around in this Technomancer hoodie like you’re a wizard in training? It’s on sale! Reach out on Twitter, or sound off in the comments below.
