Technology Meets The Other Kind of Button

With all the attention paid to interface buttons (especially by this blog, and even in its title), the good ol' clothing button must feel a bit neglected!  But there's room for innovation even in the latter, as shown by Shapeways designer Egant and the clever-but-generically-named Button 2.0.  A simple clip holds your headphone cord, keeping it in place during use and letting it hang close by otherwise.  Admittedly, one could ask if it's worth it to sew one of these on every shirt you own, whether it'd match the other buttons well enough, and whether this feature should instead be designed into the headphone cord itself.  But shhh, don't let the shirt button hear you - it deserves its day in the sun, for once in a long while!
