Despite it being Spring, it still feels like Winter in some parts of the country. You might as well go outside and pretend you are on Hoth. The question is, do you want to pretend you are Han Solo or Chewbacca?
This interactive, electronic coat called the Riajyuu isn’t the first time people have attempted to give clothes that all-too-literal human factor. Remember the Like-a-Hug jacket which gave the wearer a good old squeeze every time someone ‘liked’ his or her posts on Facebook?

In Texas, the weather can change at a moment’s notice. We tend to not change plans because of poor weather until the last second because it can be flooding one minute and sunny the next.
