Under Armour will incorporate an effortless magnetic zipper into their Fall 2014 line of clothing.

The zipper is a piece of clothing technology that hasn't changed in decades, yet it still manages to catch most people out at one point or another, usually when it's too cold to feel your fingers, or at the last minute as you try to rush out the door. Thankfully, Under Armour has come up with a solution that promises to put an end to fumbling with your zipper, the Magzip.

Starting from November next year, the company's clothing will come complete with its own Magzip, an ingenious piece of technology that magnetically clasps itself together while also providing enough leverage for you to zip up any piece of clothing one-handed.
