Italians invent automatic shirt lifter

Oh happy joy, we have finally been freed from the tyranny of endlessly rolling sleeves up and then down again.
Italian fashion boffins Corpo Nove have developed a shirt using strips of nitinol ‘shape memory’ alloy woven into it’s nylon fibres. When the shirt is cool the metal stays straight, but when it heats up it returns to it’s original pre-curved form. All great stuff but they’re going to have to make a lot to drop the £2500 price of the prototype, and metallic grey nylon shirts are not the first choice in many wardrobes.
We also have to say that considering it’s an Italian design we’re suprised they didn’t apply the technology to a skirt first.
