Gap to Offer "Stereo Sweatshirts"

Wearable computers may be with us sooner than we think, if a new offering from The Gap is any indicator. The clothing retailer is teaming up with toy maker Wild Planet to market the "Hoodio," a fleece jacket with a waterproof FM radio sewn into the sleeve and speakers in the hood. The garment is machine washable and will retail at GapKids outlets for about $68, beginning Nov. 15. Click here for more detail.
