A US clothing firm has developed a T-Shirt which is able to detect Wi-Fi broadband hotspots.

Set to be launched at the end of the month, the shirt features a display of glowing bars, which appear to emanate from a cartoon drawing of a Wi-Fi tower on its front to let the wearer know when there is a network in range.

The shirt is powered by three AAA batteries, which can be removed when the shirt is washed and are connected to the decal through a concealed ribbon cable.

A spokesman for ThinkGeek said: "Finally you can get the attention you deserve as others bow to you as their reverential Wi-Fi god, while geeky chicks swoon at your presence. You can thank us later."

McDonald’s this week announced that customers in 1,200 of its stores are to be able to access the internet for free as of December this year.
