The Ideal Valentine's Day Gift

Staying healthy is the key to keeping yourself alive. Video game characters know this all too well. When your red heart gauge reaches zero... you die. For non-bitmap humans like you this is more of a challenge. But luckily after extensive study at ThinkGeek labs we've determined that people feel best when they are in close proximity to something that they adore. Don't understand? Well luckily for you we've created this amazing 8-Bit Dynamic Life Shirt to illustrate.

Buy one of these glowing shirts for yourself, and gift one to your significant other (boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, fembot 2000...). During your normal activities two and a half pixelated hearts will light up on your shirt. Hey... you're depressed and in need of a recharge. But get within hugging distance of your significant other wearing the matching shirt and suddenly the hearts on both of your shirts start to light up until you're fully powered up. Go too far astray from the source of your affections and you'll drop back down to two and a half hearts again. Got it?

Need an Extra Geek?

Amazing you say? But what if you haven't found a cute geek girl or boy to love? Never fear lonely geek! You can buy an 8-Bit Dynamic Life Shirt and pick up a handy Transmitter Pack to go with it. Now place the transmitter pack near something you love like your Wii, Star Wars figure collection, or maybe in the backpack of that cute girl in chemistry class. When you get close to the transmitter pack then all the hearts on your shirt will light up. You've been revitalized!

Q. Dear ThinkGeek, I want to learn more about the 8-Bit Dynamic Life Shirt. What can you tell me?
A. What do you want to know?

Q. Do I need to buy two shirts?
A. You need to buy at least two shirts or one shirt and a transmitter pack for the 8-Bit Dynamic Life Shirt to function correctly.

Q. If I buy two mens shirts or two ladies shirts will they work together?
A. Yes. Any combination of shirts will light up to six hearts when they are close to each other.

Q. How does the 8-Bit Dynamic Life Shirt tell if two shirts are close together?
A. Magic of course... and a little proximity based radio frequency transmission/detection thrown in for good measure.

Q. So the shirts will light up to six hearts when they are about 5 meters apart?
A. About. It's not an exact science since the orientation of your body and other objects in the room can affect the range.
