Someone Should Build These

In the 1940s, noted scuba diving enthusiast and bald science fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke came up with the idea for the┬átelecommunications┬ásatellite. Others took his idea and ran with it, culminating in today’s reality show saturated media universe.

In that tradition, I would like someone to run with this idea:

Socks that match themselves.

The socks would contain RFID tags that, when coupled with a sound-making device, would act as homing beacons to direct you via sonic cues to their matching counterpart. All you’d have to do to ensure your socks always match is pay a small child, or if you’re a cheap bastard, train a dog, to use one sock to track down the other.

It would also be great if the sonic cue was some sort of fart noise.
