And the beat goes on
When it comes to wearable technology, it’s easy to obsess over smart watches and wristbands, and overlook actual clothing that’s also very much a growing market segment, with great potential. Although fashionistas have yet to fully embrace wearables, this day will come …
Meanwhile if you’re looking for a clothing item that’s more than practical, the Kickstarter campaign by AIOG might be of interest: an Audio Jacket that features built-in cabling for headphones, plus embedded speakers and a microphone.
There are plenty of great Bluetooth headphones on the market but most people still persist with those pesky cables – but try to keep them tucked away, when possible.
That’s part of the appeal of the Audio Jacket – with the start-up aiming high, since the clothing is pitched as the “latest product you can’t live without”.
AIOG is looking to raise US $35,000 to get the jacket into production – and if you’re interested, you can join the crowd-funding initiative. Pledge $89 or more and you will be one of the first to get the jacket – or buy 10 for $750. With Christmas coming faster than you know, it sounds (forgive the pun) like a great corporate gift.
