For years I've been waiting to make something for myself.
Finally, this is it.
The Vanilla Series is a line of jackets connecting directly to your iPhone, allowing you dynamic control. Vanilla is modular so you can choose your own set of sensors; or go with the main "a" and "k" series. Vanilla "a" has five subtle indicators near the cuff which can be used in various ways. By default they indicate turns as your biking with the flick of a wrist.
Vanilla "k" is all about what you have to say with an 8 x 8 LED matrix embedded into the back of the jacket. Don't worry, it's durable. Display a twitter message or make yourself a mobile VJ at the club.
Limited availability fall 2010 (Japan only).
