The folks at Infineon have come up with a range of technologies which they say will make it easy to create techno clothing or wearable electronics. The site features a jacket which has an MP3 player integrated into the fabric, with the controls on the sleeve and the headphones embedded in the collar or hood.
To be honest this kind of thing tends to look better in press releases than it does sitting in your pile of dirty washing, so I remain unconvinced as to its eventual global appeal. Still it makes a nice story, doesn’t it? :-)
