Long-distance relationships suck. There, we said it.
Sure, they can be fun and liberating for a while, but at the end of the day, there is always that irksome question lurking around like a tiny rain cloud above your head — "Is he/she still into me?" Good thing there's technology.
China-based clothing company RAPIDO Connected Wear came up with a genius innovation that's supposed to make the lives of long-distance couples easier and much more romantic.
RAPIDO developed a smart jacket that literally enables couples to wear their hearts on their sleeves. No matter where they are.
Using a messaging app, lovers can share their feelings with each other, which are displayed as emoticons on the jacket's surface. So, for example, sending "I love you" will create a beating heart on your S/O's sleeve.
RAPIDO's technology also allows the jacket to transmit color via an integrated color sensor. Shopping with your long-distance boo just got A LOT easier, right?
According to the company, this jacket is their attempt to move from body-focused clothing to that intended for our souls.
