The Elecwear is a cycling vest that offers two interesting advantages -- it allows you to enjoy music as well as the ability to issue turn signals, all hands-free.

The vest can be powered by a USB-rechargeable 500-mAh lithium-polymer battery which is capable of offering as much as five to ten hours of high quality music playback, although this time figure obviously depends on the volume used. This battery allows for 20 hours of signaling per full charge.

The Elecwear vest is available in a number of Asian markets, and is expected to infiltrate the American market soon. The product is likely to be priced at around $80, while there will also be other models -- ones that offer only turn indicators or only speakers -- that will cost less.
