A company called NYX clothing has reintroduced a range of customized jackets with built-in flexible display screens. The flexible screens can connect to a Palm OS PDA or smart phone.
NYX has been promoting this concept for about 2 years, but hasnâ€™t commercialized it beyond a small sample size production, until now.
You sned messages fromy our PDA to the screen. The words can be scrolled, and the message can be rotated. NYX also has a microphone-based sound-to-light feature that enables the clothing to synch its light and from the sound of voices or thebeat of music.
The illuminated jackets run on three NiMH rechargeable AA batteries and lasts for 8 hours. The current jacket has a 16Ã—16 pixel display screen on the front (7.5cm x 7.5cm) and a 16Ã—32 pixel display screen on the back (15cm x 31cm).
The flexible display technology used in this jacket can be used in all types of clothing.
NYX has completed their product development of the illuminated jackets, and is currently offering prototypes to clients for around $900 USD.
NYX is making these Jackets on demand. If you are interested into one of these Jackets, you need to get in contact with NYX directly.
