Control you iPOD with a flick of the wrist -- on your smart-fabric sleeve

Great news for all iPOD owners who live in cold places. Bad news if you own one of the many other types of MP3 player. Here's the news... pop the iPOD into your jacket pocket, and use the smart-fabric sleeve to control it!

ElekTex fabric, manufactured by Eleksen, is a five-layer laminate of conductive material that gets embedded in fabric to make it into a touchpad. The company making this unique and elitist jacket is Kenpo.

The great thing about this fabric is that it's completely machine-washable. Better yet is that it doesn't need batteries and is self-powered.
