Macy’s Shows off Sean John Sweater with OLED Display
December 5th, 2012
Macy’s is talking up a very strange sweater that comes from men’s clothing designer Sean John. The sweater has a pocket in the sleeve that holds a small 2.8-inch OLED display device called the Video Name Tag.
The video screen itself has an internal rechargeable battery and promises roughly 6 hours of use per charge. The screen has a resolution of 320 x 240 pixels, and measures 2 3/8″ (W) x 1 3/4″ (H) x 3/8″ (D). The on-board media player also has 2 GB of internal memory for storing photos for a slideshow or short video clips. The display is removable allowing users to clean the sweater.
The display-packing sweater is available now in select Macy’s store locations around the country. Pricing for the sweater and display is unknown.
