Blog: Is that an iPad in your pocket?

Joe Ayling | 26 May 2010

The firm, called iClothing, stands to capitalise judging by the sheer euphoria surrounding Apple's launch of the touch-screen tablet sized computer.

Its iTee and iDress garments have padded pouches it describes as "comfortable and almost invisible".

While the Aussie firm hasn't revealed the inspiration for its products, surely you can look no further than the native kangaroo.
