San Francisco-based purveyor of technologically-themed apparel
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
measurements.



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.

    Already have a Holster to put my smartphone in that attaches to my belt for FAR less cost ..
    What a total waste of funds/space .. there's no way that I'd even want my phone in my pocket given the things I do each day .. (far more protected in a holster)

    If I really wanted a clear pocket on my pants to use the smartphone I don't have, I'd put it there myself. I sure as hell wouldn't pay $160 for a pair of jeans that undoubtedly wouldn't fit me so I could have a plastic pocket on the front.

    There's no way in the world I'd ever pay that much money for jeans when you can get perfectly good Wranglers for around $25. A fool and his money are soon parted.

    I'd more inclined for the "Google-glasses" than the jeans. I don't think the plastic-window would last more than a couple of washings.

    I'm wondering when "they" will come up with something that you can stick up your ass that will identify you, start your car, make phone calls and add considerable length and girth to your winkie.

    It's interesting how the "be the first on your block" thing still gets folks to buy things they don't need!

    Donald Trump has one of these; want one?

    OMG i WANT THAT!!! I have no idea what it is, but if Trump wastes his money on it, it's gotta be awesome! (or something to that effect)

    People are getting hurt from people eyes glued to their phones.In the car or on the side walk. I watched people looking down & almost pushing people right in front of a moving bus.

    i'm a bit addicted to mine, to be quite honest. I like the instant connection to information whenever I think of something I want to know about, whether it's important or trivial.

    I guess I just need time to unplug and get away from it all for a while. I spend a lot of time on the internet, myself. :O)
