Recently in the sports department

Last week on my tour through a few sports outfittes, I found something cool. An O'Neill snowboard jacket with an integrated Bluetooth hub. This hub is connected to a flexible keyboard in the jacket's left arm sleeve. There is also a built-in microphone in the collar. So snowboarders with this piece of wearable electronics are able to listen to mp3-music that is stored on a 128MB card and can take voice calls from the phone that is connected to the hub by a Bluetooth connection. Infineon was the technology partner for realizing this snowboard jacket.

I am curious about this jacket's security. Perhaps snowboarders can be screened when they leave the slope for powder excursions. And maybe it is possible to get the audio from the microphone which is built in their collar. At least this would be entertaining on the way up in the ski-lift.

But since this jacket is rather pricy ( >500 Euro) it is rather unlikely that these jackets can be spotted frequently.
