TV-B-Gone jacket by Becky Stern

Brooklyn based Becky Stern was invited to contribute to a fashion show at CES 2011, so she whipped up this jacket with a built in TV-B-Gone.

Wearable tech is cool to begin with, but when that technology is performs a function you'd actually want to use, it's even better— and if that function is turning off TVs in public, that's like a high-tech hat trick.

I'm going to try to make a version of this at the next eTextiles event at CRASHspace.
