TEDxDelft is proud to announce Vodafone, one of the world’s largest mobile service providers, as one of its partners for the upcoming event on Friday 15 April. Their goal: inspire the main event’s visitors by showing off the plethora of possibilities using mobile technology.

“Vodafone reflects on how mobile technology can improve society and wants to be a facilitator for innovation,” said Annelies Valk, Marketing PR Manager at Vodafone NL. After being the first to enable payments and OV check-in by smartphone on the Dutch market, they now want to make your cycling journey safer and smarter.

As an innovator, Vodafone will demonstrate their brand new Smart Jacket at the event. To make a long story short: connect your smartphone to the jacket, and it will show you and other road users where you are heading to. The LEDs on your back and sleeves show when you want to go left or right.

Vodafone is also looking at what mobile technology could bring to the future. “When ‘celebrating the universal genius’, Vodafone also wants to engage with the Da Vinci’s of tomorrow!” explained Valk. Do you have your own smart idea for the future of mobility? Make sure you join Vodafone’s scientific panel discussion during the event. Or are you curious about the Smart Jacket?
