Great news for owner of interactive clothing and bags fitted with the Fibretronic CONNECTED-wear system. A brand new module is on it’s way to the stores promising great value for a few bucks.
The new IPLX module connects via the headphone connector to the iPod and iPhone and not via the dock connector.
To our knowledge, this is the first iPod controlling interactive fashion module using the more conveniently connectable headphone connector to hook up your shine Apple devices to your cool jackets and bags.
The IPLX iPod Controller operates the usual Play/Pause, Rewind, Fast Forward, Volume Up and Volume Down functions and works nicely with all new generation iPods and iPhones up to the latest and button less Shuffle.
Another sweetener of this new module is the price: it will cost around US$10.- less than the predecessor module IP30, leading to a retail price of around US$15.-
Here is a complete list of iPod and iPhones the IPLX iPod Controller is compatible: iPod Classic 120GB, iPod nano 4th generation, iPod touch 2nd generation, iPod shuffle 3rd generation, iPhone and iPhone 3G.
We will post an update when the IPLX module is hitting the online shops but in the meantime you might want to go shopping here or here or here for a cool, interactive jacket for you and your iPod/iPhone.
