SlopeStyle is a functional and fashionable athletic jacket concept and prototype. Digital pictures from a camera phone or PDA can be transmitted directly, or downloaded wirelessly from the internet, to a display embedded in the jacket.
A photo is emailed from a camera phone to a specified email account. Using fetchmail in daemon mode, the email is transferred to a local account on a web server. A perl script runs as a chron job and pulls images from emails for display on a WIFI enabled PDA. The PDA is loaded to a html page with a meta refresh tag so that it can display new images as they arrive. source:moondial
