Gadget-friendly clothing firm SCOTTeVEST showed off a new concept smart-coat at this year’s CES. Looking like a standard windbreaker from the outside, the SCOTTeVEST TEC Jacket 2.0 actually contains serious technology in the form of adapters, accessories, and enough pockets to safely house the majority of mobile devices.

Some of the features floated for inclusion in the TEC Jacket 2.0 include stereophonic speakers, which are mounted in the collar, and a pair of noise-cancelling microphones to facilitate easier conversation. In addition, a heads-up display is integrated into the hood.

As far as storage is concerned, there are pen and stylus pockets, an iPhone dock, a waterproof iPad pocket, and even an RFID-blocking pouch. There’s also a life-logging camera and LTE hub built-in for good measure.

The SCOTTeVEST TEC Jacket 2.0 appears to be an early prototype at present, and it’s expected to take roughly two years to bring it to market – which leaves plenty of time for you to get hold of a pair of Wearcom jeans and perhaps a Google's Project Glass device to complete a very high-tech wardrobe.

The full rundown of the clever coat's various features are detailed in the above image gallery, while the concept video below also highlights some of the company’s ideas.

I think that is cool; in a geeky sort of way. :)
Perhaps it could be sold at the Microsoft store or Apple store and sold as 'geek-ware'? :)

Has about as many pockets as my textile motorcycle jacket.
It would be nice to see some of these features incorporated into a range of jacket options: windbreaker, winter, sport, or as a liner for under a shell, or a motorcycle jacket (hint, hint).
The heated liner is good for skiers, bikers, motorcyclist and integrated gloves versus the sleeve display might be nice.

I think people are going to keep most if not all of their electronics on them or in their immediate regular cloths. People will wear wireless heads up display gasses with built in headphones mic and cameras along with a wristwatch or pocket sized main processor. Currently smartphones are the main processor and usually kept in the pocket.
