An NIWeek t-shirt so small, it’s “limited only by your imagination”.

This year’s NIWeek T-shirt was so small that it came vacuum-sealed in a 1″x3″x6″ (approximate) package. Honestly, when I first saw it, I had no idea that it was a t-shirt — it looked more like a marshmallow sandwich.

In order to compress a t-shirt into that small of a package, it has to be very thin fabric (it was actually paper thin). It was probably the flimsiest t-shirt that I’ve ever seen. When it was first taken out of the packaging, it was very wrinkled.

Unfortunately, this is probably the only time you’ll see me wearing my NIWeek 2007 t-shirt. I sure hope NI shells out for some real t-shirts, next year. Heck, I’d even pay a few bucks for a nice one.

As you can see (from the photos, video, and the caption on the back of the shirt) this is an NIWeek t-shirt so small, it’s “limited only by your imagination”. ;)

    The 2006 shirt was a bit flimsy too; I attributed it to the 70s theme (30/20 years). When I put it on, I immediately thought of the Mickey Mouse shirt I got at DisneyWorld as a kid (‘76).

    If NI could show us something like a controller that operates the machine that folded it, then I guess its relevant. Otherwise they should add $10 to the registration fee and be done with it :)

    Phillip: Yes, it would be really cool to see the machinery that is used to package those vacuum-sealed t-shirts :)
