ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - Pretty soon you won't need your phone or tablet to send a text.  All that you'll need is the "smart hoodie."  The hooded sweatshirt is the latest wearable technology.  The hoodie can respond to different gestures including touching the hood or sleeve to send a pre-programmed text message.  For example, you can program your hoodie to send a text that says, "I can't talk now," if you touch your hood or rolled up sleeve.

The "smart hoodie' is still being developed.  There is no word on when it will hit the market.
