And the beat goes on

September 21, 2014   All wearables, Smart clothing   No comments

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.
