SCOTTeVest reveals its latest wearable fashion tech item.
SCOTTeVest unveiled its latest concept at this year’s CES. The TEC Jacket 2.0 may look like an ordinary windbreaker, but it comes embedded with electronics to attract serious tech-fans.
Firstly, the jacket comes with waterproof pockets to store anything, from mobile phones, tablets, and cameras, to stylus pens and Google Goggles. There’s a special pocket that acts as an iPhone dock, and there’s even an RFID-blocking pouch.
What’s really impressive is the hood-mounted heads-up display. By pulling down on the visor panel, the wearer can access networked devices, and augmented reality apps. The heads-up display can also show various stats, including battery charge,time, and temperature.
At either ends of the collar, comes embedded with flat stereophonic speakers, along with a pair of noise-canceling microphones. It makes communicating and listening to music on the go much easier ,
The TEC Jacket 2.0 has various ways to recharge itself, including magnetic induction, AC, solar or kinetic sources. Currently, the high-tech jacket is just a prototype with no plans revealed as to whether it will be commercially manufactured. Check out the video below to see more of the jacket’s features:
