As you surely know by now, everyone's getting all crazy about the launch of the Windows Vista OS, and manufacturers from all walks of technology are prepping up for this very important event, some of them launching all sorts of strange products more or less related to Microsoft's next OS. And the device you're about to see as follows, namely the Vista display controller module from Eleksen, really fits this profile, as it can be used together with just about any textile material in order to create a device for controlling Vista.
In order to demonstrate the possibilities this very special technological solution has to offer, the people from Eleksen have created a handbag which incorporates the aforementioned control module. The system consists of three parts, the most important of them being the Vista SideShow compatible electronics, capable of receiving information from the laptop within the bag via either WiFi, Bluetooth or the already “classical” USB connection.
This very special control system also features a 2.5 inch LCD display that presents the user with all the necessary information, as well as ElekTex fabric controls, which allow navigation and access to the information stored in the on-board memory cache. Moreover, the system supports the addition of supplementary controls, depending on necessities, as for example for controlling MP3 playback, photo album show, video clips and so on.
These products will surely enjoy quite a high-level of success, especially among young people, who will probably adopt Vista a lot faster. However, there's no word yet on the price or availability of the Vista control systems from Eleksen, but they'll probably hit the market quite soon, just in time for the first laptops running Microsoft's new OS.
