Levi Strauss Debuts iPod-Compatible Jeans
MacDailyNews is reporting Levi Strauss is launching a wearable technology revolution with the introduction of new Levi's RedWire DLX Jeans. Available this fall, the jeans will be designed for both men and women and integrate iPod plug and play technology. Design features include: Easy Pocket Storage -- An iPod docking cradle is built into the jeans and is "invisibly" housed within a side pocket. "Hip" Controls -- A special joystick remote control is externally designed into the jeans' watch pocket to enable operation of the iPod. 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. Perhaps 2006 will be the "year of wearable technology". We recently featured another wearable item for the iPod, the Tunebuckle.
