G-Tech Launches New Line of iPod-enabled Messenger Bags

G-Tech has announced that its new iPod-enabled Messenger Bags will be available at major retailers across the U.S. starting mid-November. Geared to mobile, tech-savvy users, the bags include an integrated external speaker and provide a space to stash a cell phone and Apple iPod inside and control the iPod from the strap of the bag, eliminating the hassles of fumbling to work the device while on the go. G-Tech bags merge revolutionary technology with functional design to produce a unique range of bags that keep mobile users connected to their devices. In addition to the ElekTex fabric controls, the new G-Tech Messenger Bag features a first of its kind built-in speaker to deliver stereo-quality external sound, so people can share their music with friends. A built-in, universal 3.5mm extension jack plugs into virtually any device, including laptops, to route audio through the speaker.

The bags utilize Eleksen's ElekTex smart fabric controls, a unique 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. G-Tech Messenger Bags offer handy compartments to store a laptop, iPod, cell phone, and more, and it is available in black and chocolate brown.
