integrating technology into garment isn’t new and usually consists nothing more than addition of slits or holes for headphone wires to pass through, or for the more ‘advance’ style, would be the inclusion of photovoltaic cells. what if the cloths itself is the technology? i’m not talking about advance textiles here, it’s a jacket that incorporates a zipper that volumes up when you zip up and volumes down when zip down. simply known as Zip: Control your music is designed by Jennifer Damour of electricfoxy, who is no stranger experimental prototyping or better known for her social networking garment, Ping.

we are met with many dilemmas in our everyday life. this jacket could potentially add another to the list. how so? examples: if the lady is feeling cold, but can’t zip way up cos’ the music would be too loud or what iif it’s too warm, but she has to keep it zipped up to hear the music? to zip or not to zip? decision. decision. decision. before you come to decision, lets just enjoy some images of this beautifully designed jacket first or if you prefer moving images, check out the (equally beautiful) video after the images.
