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.

Not much use for the wearer

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. ®
