Meet The HoodieBuddie, An Earbud-Sweatshirt Combo

Usually when fashion and technology are integrated, you think, Hmm, that’s an interesting idea (a biking jacket outfitted with blinking turn signals on the back, anyone?), or you just laugh out loud (does weather-activated fashion really have a purpose?). Here’s something that actually seems legitimately wearable: the HoodieBuddie is a sweatshirt that replaces the hood’s ties with earbuds, so your headphones are always conveniently located. Somehow, the makers even managed to make the garment washable, too. Meaning your headphones would stay a little cleaner, we guess?
