Spacelife Jacket

La première chose qui différencie un astronaute d’un être humain lambda, c’est avant tout son accoutrement mais plus pour longtemps. Voici le projet Spacelife, un manteau qui s’inspire d’une combinaison spatiale classique et offre de nombreuses fonctionnalités techniques ainsi qu’une excellente protection contre les éléments. L’extérieur de l’enveloppe est à la fois imperméable à l’eau et réfléchissant la lumière. Le capot comprend des haut-parleurs intégrés, contrôlables via Bluetooth ou via la télécommande intégrée sur votre manche qui vous permet également de contrôler votre téléphone.
