G-Tech's new Bluetooth-enabled Messenger Bags enable users to wirelessly control their cell phone or iPod. The new design incorporates smart fabric technology so that users can store their cell phone or iPod in the bag and control it through a single touchpad on the strap of the bag. The Messenger Bag with Bluetooth features muting functions, making it easy to stop or resume music while responding to a call. The bags also offers the popular built-in speaker functionality so people can share their music with friends. Any device can be plugged into the bag’s built-in, universal 3.5mm extension jack to access the speakers’ high sound quality.
The bags utilize Eleksen's ElekTex smart fabric controls, a five-layer laminate of electrically conductive materials that transforms fabric into an electronic touchpad. The technology replaces hard touch pads, flexi-circuits, and polymer switches, which have limited the growth of the wearable electronics market with restrictive wiring. ElekTex’s lightweight, flexible, washable material is revolutionizing design across the consumer electronics and wearables sectors. Handy compartments can store a laptop, iPod, and cell phone.
