Seamless biking shorts?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Seamless biking shorts?

I remember watching the Olympic swimming last year and the analysts discussing the Speedo and the Tyr swimsuit that used lasers to basically, "melt" seams together to make a seamless suit.

Has anyone heard if that technology is possibly going to be applied to cycling wear?

Would be nice to have a truly seamless short.

I remember seeing a bib short that had a seamless chamois using the process you described, I thought it was Descente but I could be wrong.

I see a lot of bibs and shorts advertised as seamless that really aren't.

If you could design a short using that process, that would be a godsend to the cycling community.

Well the shorts I saw didn't have any seams around the chamois, it was all heat treated.

No, I was curious to try them but wasn't up to paying for them just to check that out.
