@Jack Rupert, PE--A spot on observation about the emergence of new and varied technologies from space exploration. As for me, I would definitely wear an Apollo shirt, as summer here in the South is beastly!
Another interesting non-astronaut product with it's origins in the apace industry. It's a shame that the government and people in general don't see that it isn't just about studying the surface of the moon and that there are real outgrowths from the science and the technology developed to support the science.
This is a really exciting development in my book. As a runner and avid backpacker, the prospect of a shirt that keeps me cool, doesn't stink and doesn't leave me feeling sticky at the end of the day sounds too good be be true. After you've saturated the dress shirt market, be sure to turn your attention back to the sports performance arena. We'll be waiting!
We're actually offering our Agent Shirt, which is also moisture wicking and breathable for $85.

How did you come by the technology? It is tech transfer from NASA? Is it the public domain? I would imagine some of your procedures are proprietary, but the basic technology must have been available to you.
In a bid to boost the viability of lithium-based electric car batteries, a team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed a chemistry that could possibly double an EV’s driving range while cutting its battery cost in half.
Using Siemens NX software, a team of engineering students from the University of Michigan built an electric vehicle and raced in the 2013 Bridgestone World Solar Challenge. One of those students blogged for Design News throughout the race.
Robots that walk have come a long way from simple barebones walking machines or pairs of legs without an upper body and head. Much of the research these days focuses on making more humanoid robots. But they are not all created equal.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
