Introducing the F.O.S.

My friend Mike came up with an idea called the "F.O.S. Frame," over six years ago. He told me about it at the time and I've kept my mouth shut all this time, until his final patents were approved. Now it's ok to talk about it.

The F.O.S. Frame (Freedom Of Speech) combines social media and fashion in a brand new concept never seen before. You basically wear an Instagram-type image on your person somewhere on your clothing! As you can see by the image above, a Snickers ad was placed in the F.O.S. on this jeans jacket. You can put any image in any type of F.O.S., there's an F.O.S. frame for all sort of clothing and items including jackets, shirts, hats, even neckties and backpacks.

It's sort of a walking billboard which expresses your thoughts for the moment. You can put a fashion image inside the frame from Vogue magazine for instance or if you want to promote a team or club, you can put the logo inside there.

Here's the press release explaining the whole concept. Mike is looking for manufacturers and partners from social media companies to fashion companies and designers. Everyone's welcome to contact him with their idea of how the F.O.S. Frames would fit into their business.

This is perfect for Marc Sarnoff. He loves outdoor advertising. Maybe he can put patches on his $2,000 suits and make some extra money from Clear Channel, Carter Billboards and CBS?

What does Sarnoff have to do with this?

These people are obsessed with him in the same way that the Tea Party is obsessed with Obama.

Look at what Sarnoff has done to Coconut Grove, supposedly his own neighborhood, compare the Grove to the Grove prior to him taking the commission seat in 2006, he has destroyed small businesses, people are really upset with him.

Anon 9:52: Obsessed with Mark, plus "NO LIFE" issues & monkey see, monkey do sort of thing. Not so long ago a person complained of a dead dog on Tiger tail and someone reported Mr. Sarnoff seen driving away!?

However, your friend could make a lot of money with this walking billboard, good luck to him. I think I'll call him as this has great potential. Jobie Steppe

Anon 1:12 - You do realize things will change when the economy crashes nationally right? Did Sarnoff single handedly cause the downturn too?

These comments are why we can't have nice things.

Also, not to be total D, but this idea is old and a failure.

Blame it on the economy when it comes to Coconut Grove yet forget about business growth in South Miami, Brickell, Coral Gables and Wynwood. Grove's demise was designed by Sarnoff starting with cutting bars and clubs operations and then the youth were told to stay away and to not drive on Grove streets..... The anti small business campaign is well documented. It diverted business to other neighborhoods.

@6:28 Obama single handedly destroying America.

Like I said earlier, comments like these proves the Grove has its own Tea Party.

10:04 you are not making sense, sometimes when people have no case then irrational and ignorant remarks are the best they can come up with.

I couldn't come up with a better response than yours for irrational anti-Sarnoff comments. Thanks for making my point.
