Infini-tie is a desktop printer that will print you out a different tie every time you want one. Instead of a paper feed, you load it up with precut out blank ties that come in cartridges.

You can chose "Pantone" mode for a basic solid colour, or "random image mix" which accesses an on-line photo library like Getty.

Set it up the night before and your freshly printed tie will be waiting to greet you first thing in the morning.

       + I think this is nice, but are they *paper* ties?

       Only the finest, pressed fabric will do.

       Nothing like a mobius bow-tie, then?

       Ideally it would sync with Outlook or some other diary program and print out your day's appointments on the tie.

       I'd vote for this if it was a CNC tie weaver that created a new custom silk tie on demand. Printed ties are crap.

       A bun from me.. there should also be a way to erase the pattern from the tie so as you can re-use em. Save money space and so forth..

       //The Goblin Tiesmade// I think Rumpelstiltskin should have been glad to have lent his name to this product.   

       You might remember, he also sang a little song which might be of conversational interest to some half-bakers and home-brewers:   

       "To-day do I bake, to-morrow I brew, The day after that the queen's child comes in; And oh! I am glad that nobody knew That the name I am called is Rumpelstiltskin!"[1]

That's disappointing; I was thinking of using it for an emergency replacement tie if my regular one got stained part-way through a working day.
  

       //"Pantone" mode for a basic solid colour// That alone is a good idea. I assumed it was baked, but a little casual Googling suggests not.

       This is a creative and insightful idea for sustainable clothing. However, the at-home printing technology currently available would hardly constitute the quality of an image you would want on a tie.
