Japanese lingerie company Ravijour doesn’t want its customers to settle for anything less than true love. That’s why it developed the True Love Tester, a bra with a mission to keep its contents contained until the wearer is really head over heels. Ravijour calls it “a revolutionary bra that knows how women truly feel.” A promotional video implies the brassiere could help save women from one-night stands with less-than-savory men.
The bra contains a heart-rate sensor and sends the data it collects, via Bluetooth, to an app for analysis. The app calculates what the designers call the “true love rate,” comparing the readings to activities like shopping, watching a horror movie, flirting, jogging, or receiving a surprise gift.
When the app calculates a change that correlates with a true-love rate, the bra unhooks automatically from the front. Yes, we have just discovered the flaw in the plan. What if you’re out in public, strolling down the street, and the object of your affection comes into sight? Spring. There goes your bra. Inconvenient? Yes. Funny? Maybe a long time after the fact.
With the Baseball Writers Association announcing the winners of MLB’s postseason awards this week, For The Win is rolling out our own series of awards honoring players’ accomplishments during the 2013 season.
The debut award will go to the greatest GIF of the season. First, the runners up for the FTW Best MLB GIF of 2013:
All of Yu Darvish’s pitches
The Rangers’ ace has a collection of pitches that move like they’re wiffleballs and he throws them all from very similar release points. This incredible GIF from April shows five of his pitches at once.
Miguel Cabrera disses Dustin Pedroia
In addition to being pretty much the best at hitting, Miguel Cabrera is also a very large man. Dustin Pedroia is generously listed at 5’8″ tall. Put them in the same All-Star lineup hilarity ensues.
Troy Tulowitzki among the many impressed by Jose Fernandez
This GIF is like a one-act play. Troy Tulowitzki thought he might have hit the ball so hard it disappeared, but instead Jose Fernandez just caught it like, “No big deal.”
And FTW’s MLB GIF of the Year for 2013 is:
Yasiel Puig does the worm
Puig took about a week to establish himself as one of the most GIFable players in Major League history. Later, to celebrate, he did the worm. It has everything: His incredible athleticism, his unfailing exuberance, and an amazing little jig at the end to make the people happy.
