Lederhosen with Built-in Cell Phone: Naturlich

Lederhosen with Built-in Cell Phone: Naturlich


Well, CeBIT is in Germany.

So if you look a little more closely at the lederhosen that are adorning that mannequin, you’ll see some buttons that might look familiar. Yep, those are cell phone controls, and ja, they’re sewn right in to the clothing. The lederhosen come with a place to embed your cell phone and use the exterior, leg-based controls to operate it. You won’t get an LCD, of course, but then you wouldn’t be able to read it anyway unless you contorted yourself painfully around. You will get a mouthpiece, though, that is included in the suspenders straps.

In case you’re wondering, this is a real item made by a real company, in this case Lodenfrey, which specializes in all-weather clothing and has been in business for about 100 years. They certainly know how to bring past and present together.
