Enter The Grid, Look Like A Tron Player, And Maybe Prevent A Heart Attack With The Glowfaster Jacket

You can now monitor your vital and run around pretending you’re in Tron at the same time. The Glowfaster jacket syncs over bluetooth to your iPhone, can link up with a heart rate monitor, and set workout parameters.

The coolest part about the jacket is that it glows based on your activity settings. If you’re behind on your workout the jacket will flash, and if you’re right on pace it will stay illuminated, giving you real time feedback about your progress.

The jacket can also monitor your speed using building GPS sensors on your phone. I don’t know about you, but that sure beats Siri chirping in your ear as you exercise. The Glowfaster team is currently raising funds on Kickstarter.
