Bluetooth bikini sews up iPod apparel market
Nike's iPod Bluetooth add-in for your trainers was a nice idea. On paper at least. Marks & Spencer gave a new twist to the suit by stitching in iPod controls. But the iPod bikini is now ready to take beaches by storm this summer.
Korean company JWin has developed a bikini top with controls sewn in, allowing the wearer to perform all the usual options, from adjusting the volume to selecting tracks. JWin didn't indicate where you should slip your iPod - anywhere you like, presumably, since the controls are wireless, connecting to a dongle on the music player.
JWin has a solid background in the development of iPod accessories and is already fairly well known for its iLuv brand. But will ladies take to their hearts fumbling around with their swimwear in order to listen to their favourite songs?
