(This post brought to you by extreme fatigue with Washington's political shitshow. Searched long and hard for something completely unrelated, but nearly as stupid, and came up with...zippers.)
There are very few things that aggravate me more than shitty zippers. Fumbling in the cold to get a jacket on, my fingers rapidly losing feeling, or trying to get my kids into their winter coats - these drive me batshit. (Truth in advertising: way too many things drive me batshit. I'm working on it.)
Finally, after generations of Americans faced struggles like mine, technological disruption has come to the zipper industry. Engineer Scott Peters set out to help his uncle, suffering from a degenerative muscular disease, and created a prototype magnetic zipper lock. At the same time, Kevin Plank was driving his Under Armour team to innovate in the apparel space. Peanut butter, meet chocolate.
Simple, elegant, awesome.
