iJacket controls your gadgets
Here is the link to the Zegna Sport site. High tech in fashion is pretty amazing, sometimes.

Touch-sensitive smart fabric embeds audio, phone controls.

The Zegna Sport iJacket enables you listen to your Apple iPod's music and make phone calls when you're on the move, thanks to its touch-sensitive smart fabric.

Embedded in the fabric on the sleeve of the jacket are audio and phone controls, Bluetooth and a microphone for making and receiving calls. Helpfully, the iJacket automatically turns the audio volume down when you're on the phone.

The smart ElekTex fabric featured in the iJacket is made by touch sensitive interactive textile firm Eleksen which has previously developed a fabric keyboard.

Italian fashion house Ermenegildo Zegna Holditalia SpA is behind the stylish iJacket design, which we can see being extra useful when skiing down the slopes in the Italian Alps... The price tag is set at $1,700 (£848).

fashion first. The jacket is ugly.

Id rather just manually control my gadgets but at least I would look better than that tool.

What interested me is the technology embedded the fabric, not necessarily the cut of the jacket. Having had my iPod take from me by force, and two cell phones lost in the ether... there is something about this concept that would make sense for some people, like me.

I find the idea of a coat controlling your gadgets a bit creepy, but interesting nonetheless.
