Modu Morphing Cell Phone

Modu Jackets

Modu believes that the inner workings of a cell phone should be able to change their outer jackets. Guinness’ World Record holder of the “lightest cell phone” can turn into different devices with specific buttons and interfacing. Included in the collection is the street art, express, bicycle, night, car, sport, classic and ring jacket. The Modu can also be placed into PMPs, digital cams, photo frame and DECT phones to share your images with others. We expect that this one will not be inexpensive nor cater to those who keep their cellies in their pockets without as much as a cover.

Ski SuitSpace Suit

This is what the well-dressed ski bum will be wearing in the future. Presented as part of Munich’s bid to host the 2018 Winter Olympics, the LED-lit ski suit was designed by Willy Bogner. Solar-powered, it has an optical output ration of 55 Lumens/Watts. Also featured was the “Private Space Suit” with its flexible LED panel that can go on a jacket or pants with a lifespan of up to 50,000 hours. We hope that Germany has a lot more sun during its winter than we do or the clothing will be merely expensive and gaudy.

Keep Track of Your Kids by Their Coats

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Wearables, Google, GPS

Bladerunner JacketThe British clothing company Bladerunner has created a coat for children that features a GPS SiRF III in its lining. Originally made for mountain climbers and other sports fanatics, the jacket operates by the use of Google Earth maps and therefore can be used worldwide. Updated every 10 minutes, the image will narrow the view down to within 4 square meters. It also features Bladerunner’s slash-resistant lining and 2 dedicated buttons for emergencies. Considering that the outerwear has a price of $500.00 and $20.00 a month for the technology, we just hope you have one of those kids that is not the first to leave his/her coat at the local playground.
