Dutch electronics giant The changeourbatteriesand/orciothes. Phillips NV and U.S. apparel maker Levi Strauss & Co. have combined their talents to create a jacket with electronic gadgetry built in. According to the Wall Street Journal, the companies' $900 high- tech jacket comes equipped with an MP3 player for playing music downloaded from the Web, a cel- lular phone, a headset and a small remote control device. The jacket's collar doubles as a mouthpiece and buttons on the sleeves serve various functions. The jacket will only be sold in Europe. Although the manufac- turers don't plan to introduce the jacket in the U.S. until compatibil- ity problems with the cell phone are solved, it's only a matter of time before someone complains, "I've been calling his trenchcoaV for hours, but no one answers?" Certain skeptics in the cloth- ing industry question the safety of a jacket with four feet of wiring and assorted hardware. One clothing designer told the Journal, "There is still a discus- sion going on whether it's safe to have handsets close to your body." I wouldn't be able to tell a handset from a handstand, but it can be assumed that electronic jacket wearers face the danger of venturing into thunderstorms and short-circuiting. Nothing has been said about the nasty combination of electronics and persons who tend to perspireheavily. We shouldn't overlook the times when jacket users might pos- sibly trip and fall into open bodies of water.

The expression, "He's really wired", will take on new meaning as clothes become more valued for their sound clarity and ability to recharge than their style and fit. As clothes increasingly do double duty as appliance and elec- tronic accessories, one question remains unanswered. Will the clothing with speak- ers in the collars and wires running up and down the sleeves be re- cycled to Goodwill or to a hazard- ous waste site?
