Wear Your Tablet or Laptop: Literally—How It’s Possible and Why It’s Important Molly Nox

There are countless jobs that require us to use our laptops and/or other mobile devices. What we find happening is that we can only get so far on our phones or tablets, and then we invariably wind up busting out the laptop. But where… and how? Wearable ways to do this are important more now than ever with apparel, especially for specific occupations, including bike couriers, those en route to a flight, and pretty much anyone else on the go. If you’re trying to open an Excel spreadsheet to make edits and send it back to the important people back at the office within just a few minutes, making that happen on your iPad or even another type of very versatile tablet can become more than overwhelming.
So clothiers are starting to come up with options—mainly jackets and other “over clothing” options—that cater to this new need. While the PADX-1 LEDGE pullover is designed for iPads, it will also fit other tablets of the same size as well as other compact laptops such as the 13-inch MacBook Pro and the AirBook, along with of course competitors' laptops of the same or similar dimensions. The coolest thing about the LEDGE pullover, also known as the Wearcom, is that it doesn't just sit comfortably at your midsection when not in use. The Wearcom comes fully equipped with a harness that lowers like a drawbridge of sorts when you unzip the compartment. In this way, you can power up, check on emails, social media and the like, then power down and zip back up.

Right now the PADX-1 is suited just for Apple products, though one could easily “life hack” their tablet into the current model. Not to worry, though, the Wearcom line of apparel is on the rise with plans for options for a number of other core options for tablets from Samsung and other touchscreen and mobile devices, of which the Airbook and other small laptops will be accommodated.

But there’s more to the PADX-1 LEDGE pullover and Wearcom technology, which you will surely be seeing more and more of when we factor in things like airport security checkpoints, the not-so-user-friendliness of backpacks and briefcases, and of course, the weather. Maybe the most soothing feature to buyers of this type of tech-friendly apparel is that the Wearcom pullover is made of waterproof materials, including several layers of water resistant fabrics, including a thermal soft-shell that doesn't just protect against the elements, but also against bumps and jolts you may experience in a crowded airport, subway, or city street.

Available in sizes from small to extra large, the PADX-1 LEDGE pullover  is sure to do well, and without a doubt will soon be the recipient of flattering knockoffs boasting the same or similar protection for your high tech gear. Priced at just $285, it's really not that expensive of an item when you consider the insurance you're buying for your tablet or laptop along with a pullover that is actually quite  attractive, functional, and warm.

  1. It was only a matter of time I guess before someone came up with this. Soon people won't even need their hands to do anything--so sad.

  2. Wow isn't thay clever. I had no idea this was even in existence but it's pretty neat. Not sure I would use it but it's a pretty cool concept! I prefer sitting to do my work, walking and reading would trigger my headaches lol!

  3. This is a genius invention. I wish I had had one when I was working for my doctor. I could have pulled up all of the test from the hospital and more, from the rooms of the patients instead of having to do it in my office. This is going to help so many people. I wouldn't want the grand kids to have one though as it's hard enough trying to get them off their tablets.

  4. There are a ton of situations where this would come in handy. I didn't know these were on the market though. Very cool!

  6. Oh wow... I'm surprised I haven't heard about this sooner, but not surprised that something like this is on the market. Not sure I would even want one... But I'm sure plenty would.

  7. Woah, that's pretty clever. People tuck their tablets into jackets and sweatshirts all the time, so this extension really isn't that far out. Neat idea, and definitely practical for certain jobs!

  10. This just made me chuckle! Hey, if there is a market for it - sell it! $285 for a pullover, though? Wow.

  11. Oh my gosh, how crazy is THAT? IT would really help with people who use their tablets all the time for work!

  15. Thank you for allowing me to learn something new! With technology, it is often difficult to keep up!

  16. Oh God no, I'm not a fan of this at all. I need to put down my laptop, not spend more time with it! I can see why so many people would love this though.

  17. I had no idea this type of "techie" clothing existed in the marketplace. As we are becoming a tech society, I can see this becoming a hit.

  18. I don't really have a need for one. However, that is an ingenious idea for those who are very techie!

  19. Oh wow.. that's the first time I have seen that, haha! Awesome, lol.

  20. I think I want that! It's practical specially here in the Philippines where there are a lot of snatchers.
