Wearcom Jeans With Touch-Transparent iPhone Pocket

Dork jeans

Now you can look like you;re playing with yourself as you innocently use your phone.

Alphyn Industries’ DELTA415 Wearcom jeans may as well have been called the Dork-O-Tron 3000, for they are nerdy in the extreme. They are also flat-out awesome, and if I was the kind of person who spent $160 on a pair of jeans, then I’d be al over them. Or all in them, I guess.

The Wearcoms are simple: the front right pocket has been replaced by a see-through phone pouch, complete with a protective flap to cover it.

Apparently inspired by the G-suits worn by fighter pilots, the jeans have a clear pocket through which the wearer can use a multi-touch screen, and a button hole through which you can thread a headphone cable.

It is of course ridiculous, although I can see at least one scenario where it would be useful: on a bike. You could ride and still have your iPhone ready to glance at maps or change the music you’re beaming to your Bluetooth speaker, all without having to put it on a handlebar bracket.

Orienting your phone screen-out does have some problems, though. Even with the flap closed, a good whack is going to break the screen and not just crack or dent the back.

The jeans are made of indigo-dyed denim, and come in fatty-unfriendly sizes of 28 to 38 inches. Available now.

    Even on a bike this would be ridiculous. Pedaling doesn’t exactly make it easy to use something attached to the leg. Someone should tell the designer of these jeans…sometimes less is more.

    Lol No!

    Nice “steal me” sign, written all over it.

    This is the stupidest thing I’ve ever seen. And I watched Mitt Romney speak the other day, so that’s saying something.

    You forgot easy to steal!

    I assumed he was referring to a motorcycle, which kind of makes more sense…. but still ugly!

    Very clever, let’s advocate driving down the road whilst looking down at the iPhone strapped onto our leg. Definitely deserves a nomination in the Darwin Awards.
