After those two positive marks, the jeans veer into the is-this-really-necessary category. However, the keyboard's ergonomic, left-thigh placement of the alphabet could be Beauty and the Geek's saving grace. But with the return key unfortunately located in the jeans' crotch, I'm envisioning some very strange stares, perhaps even a call to the decency police, should you choose to peck away in public.
But they are functional, so let's take a look at their specs.
The right back pocket has been specially designed so the mouse fits snugly inside. The mouse is connected to the jeans via a strip of elastic and the pants come with a USB device that plugs into users' computers so a wireless connection can be maintained.
Don't plan on plucking these off the rack just yet. "The whole project is too complex and we don't have enough money right now to to get it ready for the market," de Nijs said. Even if they did, he said the estimated cost would be almost $400.
For that kind of money, you could buy a laptop. While you won't find me dashing to the nearest retailer, should Beauty and the Geek come to market, I would take a pair for a test drive. Just not in public.
