France 24's TV jacket

Big-screen beauties were spotted wondering the halls of Mobile World Congress in Spain today, each wearing padded jackets with rear-mounted TV screens built in. Inside each jacket is a power pack, measuring roughly 4 x 4 x 2in, that drives circuitry able to pick up live TV streams and show it on the screen.

Sadly, France 24 doesn’t have any plans to launch telly jackets.

The hi-tech clothing was actually designed to promote the launch of its TV streaming application for the iPhone. The app allows Apple users to watch real-time France 24 news content on their screens. ®
