Zero Punctuation: Splinter Cell: Conviction

USB powered footwear isn’t eactly new to the novelty market, but it hasn’t really been embraced by the mainstream clothing makers yet. Well, that’s about to change; Columbia Sportswear just announced the usb powered Omni-Heat boots.

Omni-Heat is Columbia’s latest clothing line, and includes two men’s boots, and two women’s boots that are electrically heated. The battery pack is powered by a USB connection, and takes about 4 hours to charge. No word on how long the battery lasts once it’s fully charged. I have to tell you, I think I might have to pick a pair of these up when they are available this September 1st. No word on MSRP.
