There has been a surge of wearable technology recently with Lumo launching a Kickstarter campaign for its LED clothing in December and the Recon Jet computerised glasses with heads up display that are due to launch early this year. But these new Visijax jackets do something we have not seen before by indicating when you raise your right or left arm.
There are three products in the second generation of Visijax wearable LED clothing. The first in the range is the Commuter Jacket (£99.99), which has 23 LEDs across the front and back, but the most interesting addition is those built into the sleeves.
The jacket is made from a waterproof and breathable fabric, is USB rechargeable (a full charge lasting for 30 hours) and is fully machine washable without having to remove the lights.
You can also buy the Highlight Jacket (£79.99), which is the same as the Commuter Jacket but without the turn-signalling indicators and the LED Sports Belt (£24.99)
