Allow me to set the scene for you:

It’s a cold day, and you’ve just stepped out of your door wearing a warm jacket or coat. You reach down to zip up your jacket, and while you’re fumbling with the zipper you trip over a downed power line and die. This terrifying scenario will soon be a thing of the past thanks to Under Armour and engineer Scott Peters, who have created a one-handed magnetic zipper called MagZip.

Even though the name makes me think of mayonnaise for some reason, MagZip does appear to be a pretty revolutionary piece of technology. I know I’ll feel pretty cool zipping up with one hand, which seems like something only Bruce Wayne or Tony Stark should be able to do.

To get a sneak preview of the Under Armour MagZip, check out the hilariously overblown promotional video below. Then you just have to be content with your regular old zippers until fall 2014, when the MagZip is set to hit the market.
