"FOR the man or woman who has everything ... a garment that is the latest thing in wearable electronics.

Why bother with shoulder bags, music players and tangles of headphone wires? Why let some clunky mobile ruin the cut of your jacket? Just slip in to a mp3blue jacket for a mere 599 from the German clothes manufacturer Rosner.

It is equipped with 128-megabyte mp3 player controlled through cloth buttons on the left sleeve, and headphones built into the collar. Alongside is a Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone, with the hands-free microphone inside the lapel, all fitted courtesy of German chipmaker Infineon.

A tiny electronic module containing the player and the battery can be slipped out so the jacket can be washed.

The global market for so-called smart fabrics and interactive textiles was worth around 300 million last year, according to American technology market research firm Venture Development Corporation.

It estimates that will grow to more than 500m by 2008, driven by military, security and healthcare applications.

Rosner said the jacket was aimed at the technologically progressive fashion-conscious."


Wearable electronics.. why do people these days feel it necessary to have access to their MP3 library, the Internet and a phone 24/7? What next? a toilet seat with a hard drive? Pillows with speakers and antennas? Sheesh, is anybody really that important that they have to be reachable, and connected to the sum of human knowledge every moment of their lives?
Mark my words, pretty soon, people with be rushing to be fitted with devices embedded in their bodies, then they won't even have to put the jacket on. People will get fat, just so they can have room for extra devices. The human race will evolve into huge bloated versions of Radio Shack covered in skin.

I couldn't agree more. I knew things were changing when they came out with those bubblegum filled fake mobile phones ten years ago I used to buy my kids. icon_mrgreen.gif Me, I'm old school here, suppose I always will be. icon_wink.gif

What next? a toilet seat with a hard drive?


LOL - When my brother-in-law built his house a few years ago, he hard wired in the tele jack right above the toilet paper holder. I was left with no words....Ok, well maybe a few.

Yea in a paintball magazine i get i saw an article about that in there. It showed all the pockets and the integrated solar panels in the shoulders. At first glance you really would think it just another jacket.
