Macy’s Introduces Holiday Sweater With Playable Video Screen

The sweater is being introduced exclusively in select Macy’s stores this week. Recom Group’s CEO, Rob Norden, says of this combination of technology and fashion:

Our technology allows us to put video screens just about anywhere. Video screens are an integral part of our lives from our phones to our homes. Clothing was a natural extension. We love what Sean John has created to embrace this new fashion accessory.
