iPod Levi's

Postat: 2006-01-11 kl. 09.12

Vi har sett nyheter om bilar som anpassar sig för iPod:s. Nu verkar Levi's dock tagit Steve Jobs ord från presentationen av iPod Nano på allvar:

To stress the diminutive size of the new iPod Nano, Steve first teases the audience: "Did you ever wonder what this pocket is for?" he says, pointing to the mysterious "fifth pocket" found just above the right pocket in most jeans. "I've always wondered that...well now we know..." And with that Steve pulls out the iPod Nano to the delight (and gasps) of the audience.

Jeans feature docking cradle, joystick in watch pocket to operate device


Denim giant Levi Strauss said on Tuesday it had designed jeans compatible with the iPod music player, featuring a joystick in the watch pocket to operate the device.

The Levi’s RedWire DLX Jeans for men and women, which will be available this fall, also have a built-in docking cradle for the iPod and retractable headphones. The jeans are expected to carry a price tag of over $200, a company spokeswoman said.

Jag hittar Levi's pressmeddelande:

The Levi's(R) RedWire(TM) DLX Jean is the latest extension of the Levi's(R) brand leadership position by merging fashion and technology that provides consumers with the most innovative way to enhance their portable, digital music lifestyle," said Robert Hanson, Levi's(R) U.S. brand president. "In designing the jeans we considered both function and fashion -- the result is a uniquely functional, yet stylish, great fitting jean."

Design features include:

-- Easy Pocket Storage -- An iPod docking cradle is built into the jeans and is "invisibly" housed within a side pocket. The Levi's(R) design team took special care to ensure the iPod unit remains neatly and securely stored in the jean, while the iPod "bump" in the pocket is virtually eliminated. The cradle is equipped with sophisticated technology housed in a red conductive ribbon that allows users to quickly and easily remove their iPod from the pocket to view its screen while staying connected. The jean is machine washable once the iPod is removed.

-- "Hip" Controls -- A special joystick remote control is externally designed into the jeans' watch pocket to enable operation of the iPod. Four-way controls allow the wearer to easily play/pause, track forward, track back and adjust the volume control without ever removing the iPod from the pocket.

-- Handy Wire Retractor -- A handy retractable headphone unit has been built directly into the jean to help prevent tangles and efficiently manage the iPod earphone wires.

Fanns det inte någon skidjacka med iPod-kontroller för ett par år sedan?

Jo. Den finns fortfarande.

Och det är inte ens Levi's första försök med mp3-spelare, de har gjort något tidigare med Philips förut.

Jag tror det finns mer jackor också, förutom Burtons. Men de har jag ingen koll på ...
