*These are awesome in the sheer sense that they are so terrible. You would think nothing could make them any less terrible. But the thing is, they all have some unusual, surprising use of technology. It may get lost in the hideousness, but it is definitely there—a little LED, a video display, or some musical number. So please enjoy (but probably don't ever wear) these eight awesome, terrible, teched-out sweaters.
