Alphyn Industries has released the DELTA415 Wearcom jeans: a pair of
jeans which allow the wearer to see and use a touchscreen smartphone
without needing to actually take it out of their pocket.
Originally inspired by the utility of the pockets and straps which
adorn a fighter pilot's G-suit, the DELTA415 Wearcom straight leg jeans
include a transparent polymer film pocket through which the smartphone
can be seen and used. When not in used, a denim flap covers the pocket
to make the jeans appear just like any other.
A button hole opens into the front pocket of the jeans for threading
headphones through and the company confidently states that the polymer
pocket will house any touchscreen smartphone up to 3 x 5 inches,
including all iPhone models and Android devices which fall within those
Though fashionistas will no doubt poke fun at such an unashamedly
geeky product, it's also apparent that the DELTA415 Wearcom jeans could
indeed be useful to those who spend a lot of time riding a bike, as well
as people who wish to check their phone while in an environment which
is potentially hazardous to delicate electronics.
The DELTA415 Wearcom jeans are available for US$160 internationally (plus postage for non-US residents).
$160 bucks!! So, would you wear these? I think a shirt version would be much more practical, personally.
