Live Comfy Jacket features Phone Controlled Inflatable Hood

A new smart travel jacket has an integrated pump to inflate the hood for a comfy nap anywhere.

Live Comfy engineered a smart jacket that incorporates an air system and smart pump to inflate ergonomic air chambers located in the hood.  With the Live Comfy jacked travelers can rest their head anywhere and have a comfortable pillow. The pump is controlled via a smartphone app to adjust the pressure.

The integrated inflatable pillow reminds at the BauBax Travel Jacket, which is the most funded project in crowd-funding history. The difference is though that the Baubax jacket pillow needs to be inflated and deflated manually. You can save you breath with the Live Comfy jacket and have the garment pump for you.

The Live Comfy jacket has a series of additional features including media pocket and cable management. 

Live Comfy's Braden Zoet told I4U News: "Our biggest advantage is undoubtedly the technology built into our jacket. Every jacket comes with a smart pump to inflate the interwoven air system. That pump also acts as a portable battery pack, so you can charge any device that plugs into a USB port. Additionally, there is an included audio jack, so you can listen to music from your phone without the hassle of wires. The pump can be controlled manually or from your smart phone."

The Live Comfy team just launched a Kickstarter for the jacket with a modest $30,000 funding goal. The goal is to ship the jacket in the 2015/2016 Winter season.

We asked Zoet how realistic the shipping goal is. He said: "An end of year release schedule is our intention, but admittedly that is being optimistic. We are working with manufacturers who will be busy filling orders during the holiday rush. The priority they give to us will realistically be determined by the size of the order we place with them. For this reason we have predicted shipment to take place during Winter 2015-2016, so as not to make the promise that we can fulfill an order by Christmas or any other holiday."

The biggest challenge the Live Comfy team is tackling at the moment are applying and paying for the necessary registrations applicable for their product. Among these are being licensed by Bluetooth and ensuring that the jacket is TSA compliant.
