Clothing for the Gadget Era
These days, we all lug around more devices than we can keep up with: phones, iPods, headsets and BlackBerrys. A number of firms are trying to push tech clothing to try to take advantage of it all.
A company in Idaho claims to have solved "the daily challenge of carrying and using multiple electronic devices while still sporting the latest in fashionable technology apparel." SCOTTEVEST, a subsidiary of Technology Enabled Clothing, sells shirts, hoodies, vests, pants, hats and jackets that all have hidden compartments to tote around your gadgets.
The company even got a patent for what it calls the "personal area network," or the ability to channel wires through the lining of the clothes in order to wire and connect various devices. Shirts also have specially designed pockets so you can store devices without stretching or weighing down the neckline. Could be handy, if you're willing to rewire your own clothing before wearing it.
The company also sells solar panels you can attach to the back of a jacket that recharges Mp3 players and cell phones while you're out and about.
I wonder how many moms out there received this as a gift yesterday.
