Motorola / Burton High Tech Clothing
Picture this: The temperature is cold, you are high atop a mountain looking down, and you drop off the lift. You feel the cold air as you wiz down the side of a mountain. You hear your favorite song playing, but it gets interrupted by your all too familiar ringtone. You tap your sleeve…“Hello?”, it’s the Mrs. yelling at you to get home.
Ok maybe not so cool, but this is the next generation of clothing. Motorola and Burton are devloping ski jackets that will have a padded casing for a Motorola cell phone and an MP3 music player. They will feature a device on the sleeve that lets the wearer control incoming and outgoing calls, and toggle back and forth to music, sending audio signals to removable speakers in the hood.
Thank you, Caller ID.
