WEARABLE TECHNOLOGY

O'NEILL


PROBLEM: Skiers and Snowboarders are venturing further into the backcountry and need constant access to localisation and terrain information. Due to wearing thick gloves for the cold and needing their hands free for climbing and riding they struggle to manipulate phones and other gadget.


SOLUTION: The first Navigation Jacket on the market. A drop down chest pocket allows access to devise when really needed. Commands are sent through touch buttons (big enough to cater for gloved fingers) placed on the outside shoulder of the Jacket. A screen display at the left forearm allows the rider to follow arrows that direct him or her to the destination point. Our objective with this project was to continue the legacy of Jack O'Neill, the founder of O'Neill and inventor of the wetsuit.
