A new kind of underwear – being marketed by some of the same folks behind Speedos – has technology that enables it to absorb odors. Originally developed for astronauts, they’re now available to sale in Japan just in time for the BO-drenched dog days of summer. You know that crazy astronaut chick is really mad these weren’t around when she did her cross-country diaper-clad road trip. Seriously, though, this will make a great gift for your hippie roommate who thinks showering is bourgeois.
