For Gadget People... A Place to Put All of That Stuff

Techstination feature for Tuesday, December 22, 2009

What do you give a gadget person? A place to put all of that stuff. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. How many gadgets do you carry around? An apparel company called SCOTTEVEST for years has specialized in creating vests, jackets, pants and more with what CEO Scott Jordan calls a personal area network. They have pockets to carry everything...and built in channels for headphone wires and such. The latest in the line is a soft shell jacket...

"It has 19 hidden pockets. And it has clear touch fabric that enables you to control your devices right through the fabric. So for instance if some were to call you, without having to take your cell phone out of your pocket, all you'd need to do is look through the fabric and you can see who is calling."

The jacket retails for 175 dollars. You'll find other techie garments for as little as 35 dollars at You can find us with archives, interviews and more at I'm Fred Fishkin.
