If there are two fashionable things it has to be the Smartphone and hoodie, but it seems only logical that somebody is going to mash the two together to produce the smart hoodie wearable technology is getting more wearable these days and this design proves that point fully. Thanks to Alina Balean and Rucha Patwardhan, this dream is becoming a reality with the smart hoodie, wearable technology at its finest and at its most practical.
What they have done is taken an ordinary Smartphone and hoodie added some cool tech to come up with this very usable smart hoodie that effectively is a Smartphone that you wear, sure this is a one off at the moment, but it does not necessarily mean that will always be the case.
In order to produce the smart hoodie, the designers have taken all of the components from a Smartphone and built them into the hoodie to make the hoodie into an actual Smartphone, it sounds amazing and in reality, it is. It would be great to see this kind of thing going on sale.
A series of switches were installed so that by making certain movements and gestures the device would make the action determined by that switch such as posting on social media accounts with pre prepared message. Obviously, the features could be enhanced to suit the users requirements, such as being in a situation where making a phone call or sending a text message is impossible or impractical.
This cool hoodie is not available to buy yet, it is only a prototype, but if it were to go on sale would this be something that you would buy and wear? We know that we would, but preferably in a coat, as there is more usability in that type of clothing.
