Fashion that’s both fun and functional? Sign us up!
You know those moments when you wonder what the future will be like? Maybe it happens after you watch Back to the Future or after the next Apple launch is announced. Such visions are often filled with hover boards, flying cars, and all things sleek and shiny – but what about the here and now? What about the current, super cool products that were designed to make our lives easier, and thus, make our happiness levels go through the roof?
Luckily, we’ve come a long way and such happiness-inducing products are a reality. Even better – many of them can be taken on-the-go, in the form of wearable tech.
In other words, the future is now, people! And here are the clothing items to prove it:
1. AiraWear: a massage jacket
This idea is so beautiful we want to cry tears of joy.
At the office? Commuting to work? On an airplane? Laying on the floor and staring at the ceiling? Well, why not do all of that and get a massage at the exact same time? The AiraWear jacket features vibration motors that provide deep pressure therapy (which helps release serotonin and dopamine in your brain).
Via the company’s app, you can also choose from several massage types. Plus, there’s even an option that will help you correct your posture. Essentially, it’s like a massage chair you can have with you at all times (minus all the noise, ’cause that could get awkward)!

While the jacket isn’t on the market as of right now, a crowdfunding campaign will be launching next month. According to Mashable, the product will end up selling for $249.
