I have three words for you: winter is coming. If you’re not spending it on the slope or ice skating, you’ll probably feel its uncomfortable, frosty grasp. But this year, maybe instead of layering like a pro, you’ll decide against it and opt for 8K Flexwarm, a smart jacket that heats up your body as much as you want it, wherever you need it #objectmagic
This athletic cut jacket follows the shape of your body (so you don’t look like the Michelin man) and offers a drawstring to adjust the fit. There are a couple of exterior pockets and two internal ones for your phone and earbuds. But the exciting part comes now: inside this normal-looking winter jacket (or vest – you can opt for that, too), there are heat elements that can warm up the textile.
In fact, you can adjust the inner heat up an raise it up to 122 degrees Fahrenheit in no more than six minutes. These are powered by a 7,500mAh battery pack that comes with the piece of clothing and lasts up to six hours. You can buy a bigger one, of course, and attach it instead.
The best part is you can control the amount of heat received and where it goes – chest, back, neck or belt area. The smart clothes from 8K connect via Bluetooth to a mobile device and the adjusting can be done from a mobile app. One already exists for iOS and an Android version will come soon.
