Funny Foto Friday: MP3 Player Jogging Suit


RunningLaur, who is training for a 100 mile race (and is therefore certifiably insane), recently sent me a Funny Foto Friday that I couldn’t pass up.  For that matter, if anyone else has a funny Foto Friday that they think deserves mention, shoot it my way!  While I can’t promise that I’ll post it, if I do I’ll give you all the credit. I might even call you certifiably insane!

Anyway, turns out that an inventor created a “Jogging suit” that not only includes built in controllers, but is powered by your up and down movement!

Per neatorama.com, Rafael Rozenkranz designed a washable jogging suit that has a MP3 player built into it. A kinetic generator powers the player, which is controlled with large buttons on the chest. Best of all, the skintight suit will look so very attractive on you.

A few things:

  • If I see you wearing this, I don’t care if you are running mile repeats at 4:00/mile pace – you are JOGGING
  • Really?  We needed to make this thing skin tight and look like it was from the movie TRON?  REALLY!?
  • This dude has a beard, but no man bits.  Sort of like an army Ken doll.
  • Quite honestly, if someone were to tell me that it had speakers built into the ass, I think that I just might have to buy it.  But, then again, I already have a speaker built into my ass – and it only plays one horrible horrible note.  Happy Friday!

And you still have wired headphones?! THAT is the lamest part!

No thanks. I'll stick to singing to myself, a habit my brother greatly appreciated for the 14 hours we spent racing together last Sunday.

Curious about the purpose of the cutout in the side...

Colin Hayes said...

I think the cutout is form over function. Quite sexy.
And Adam, we need to talk. My ass can play the entire major and minor scales.

I don't see what the fuss is about. Clearly this dude goes straight from his running workout to the figure skating rink. Genius, really. (Must make sure my children never see this photo so as not to scar them eternally!)

Um..wow! If they made it in yellow I might have to order or not. LOL thanks for sharing!

1) If you have a giveaway for this I will do whatever it takes to win.
2) That is all.

Flawless design, except that the creator neglected to realize that if you're wearing this, you're going to want THE WORLD to hear what you're jammin' out to... I propose a fanny-pack subwoofer attachment...

Is there a skirted version?

In pink and you'll make a killing!

RunningLaur said...

Can even a non-function version of this be the mandated dress code for FYTO5k?

"I already have a speaker built into my ass – and it only plays one horrible horrible note."

Well-played, sir.

That suit would make anyone run MUCH faster, because high school bullies would be chasing you to beat you up! (Note: This is not an endorsement of bullying, just a statement of fact.)

PS - "one horrible horrible note..." Priceless!

The cut out...

Joanna said...

No, ain't nobody running in that. Even the women still rocking the 80s gym rat attire would know that something had gone horribly, horribly wrong. Oh my!

YIKES! That is just hideously awesome!

Hmmm. When is the Star Trek Marathon?
