Infineon Bluetooth Snowboard Jacket
 
 

Last year Burton came out with a MP3 Snowboard jacket. This year we nearly missed the O'Neill MP3 Snowboard jacket called "The Hub" announced in January.

O'Neill and German's Infineon Technologies collaborated on a wired interactive Jacket. Functions such as “mobile telephony by Bluetooth” and “MP3 player” are integrated into the sportswear.
Woven into THE HUB snowboard jacket are electrically conductive fabric tracks which connect the chip module to a fabric keyboard and built-in speakers in the helmet. The chip module contains a full-featured MP3 player and a Bluetooth module via which the snowboarder can control a mobile phone. If the snowboarder wants to make a phone call, the stereo system acts as the headset. The microphone is integrated in the collar of the jacket.
