G-Tech Delivers Sound Shell for iPods

G-Tech has announced a new water repellent carrying case for iPods. The Sound Shell semi-hard case stores the iPod away from environmental hazards yet allows full control of the device simply by tapping the "smart fabric" graphics on the outside of the case. Users can enjoy music privately with headphones or share tunes with friends through the ultra-thin NXT speaker built right into the shell. The stylish G-Tech Sound Shell utilizes ElekTex smart fabric controls, a unique five-layer laminate of electrically conductive materials that transforms fabric into an electronic touchpad. The ElekTex lightweight, washable material replaces the hard touch pads, flexi-circuits, and polymer switches which have limited the growth of the consumer electronics accessories market.
