German Clothier introduces wireless jacket

    BEIJING, July 27, (Xinhuanet) -- If it's simply unbearable to be unable to hear music, here's something you should slip on: a jacket with a built-in MP3 player, reported CRIENGLISH.COM Tuesday. 

    A new jacket from Rosner GmbH & Co., a German clothing firm, incorporates a 128-megabyte MP3 player that is controlled through cloth buttons on the left sleeve. Headphones are built into the collar.

    The jacket also has a hands-free cell phone microphone tucked into the collar, which works with phones on the Bluetooth short-range wireless standard.

    A tiny electronic module containing the music player and the battery, which the company says is good for up to eight hours per charge, can be slipped out so the jacket can be washed.

    Priced at 599 euros ($725), it will be available through the Rosner web site starting in August for delivery in February. Enditem
