Basically, this is a device that lets you discreetly check in public whether or not your pants fly is up. By pressing a button located in the watch pocket of your pants, a small pager motor alerts you to whether or not the zipper is up.

Here is a concept. Look down.

If there are flies in my pants, it's time to change them.

I'm interested, but I'll defer buy-in until smartphone integration becomes available. Preferably, I'd like a text message alert when my fly is down but GPS shows I'm in motion. Not too much to ask, is it?

Yes, look down. You see so many looking down at their phones these days, anyway.

If the motor's in the right place, you could really run the batteries down, IYKWIMAITYD.

(paraphrase) Drastic improvement to uncertain crotch grabbing using two strands of conductive thread.

nursecindy, has uncertain crotch grabbing been an issue for you?

Mind the gap.

MOTW, I plead the 5th.

If you don't remember that your zipper is down, what makes this guy think you'll remember his button?

Back to the drawing board, dude.

I saw Uncertain Crotch Grabbing warming up for The Buzzcocks at CBGBs in 1986. Helluva show!

Rev 1 just alerts the wearer. The next version, intended for sale to political wives, sends email to a configurable list of recipients, including Matt Drudge and the Huffington Post.

Discrimination. What if you wear 501s?

When the NSA gets a hold of these there will be no end to fly-snooping.

I do not, "...grab(bing) (my) crotch uncertainly all the time."
I do it with great enthusiasm and dedication.

Bet it doesn't take long for suspicious girlfriends to reverse the wiring so it pings them when the zipper goes down.
