iPod snow jacket

Spyder_limited_edition

A rather cool-looking gadget for snow freaks is set to pop up on the piste next winter. Spyder, apparently the largest specialty ski-brand in the world, has just announced the launch of a ski jacket with integrated iPod controls. The user simply touches the button on their arm with their glove to change track.

And the best bit? The buttons are all completely made out of fabric pioneered by UK smart fabrics company Eleksen, thus avoiding any embarrassing breakages during major falls - to the equipment in any case. The jacket will be available in limited numbers from September for the rather steep $3000 dollars, although the price does include the jacket, a music and photo iPod, matching trousers, and a custom hanger and garment bag, as well as a unique serial number, for all diehard collectors of ski apparel.

But it didn't come with a garment bag.

If you buy this jacket, God is telling you that you have too much money. See you in hell.
