Marriage Hunting Bra uses LED tech to ward off old maid status

Combine Japan's declining birth rate with its wild tech innovations and you inevitable get something like the Marriage Hunting Bra. Unlike the fairly free wheeling older singles in the West, fear of becoming an "old maid" in Japan is serious business.

Thus Triumph International was inspired to create this concept bra that uses an embedded LED to display the number of days left until the woman's perfect wedding date. As if that wasn't enough pressure, the bra even features a ring holder, a pen and personal marriage seal (or hanko) for when the big day arrives. In case you had any doubt that this maniacal marriage contraption is real, you can see it in action here.
