Fashion experts: iPod makes technology fashionable

updated 09:45 am EDT, Thu June 2, 2005

iPod fashion

The success of the iPod proves that "," according to New Scientist. "The iPod has given a real kick-start to the idea of wearable technology," Sandy Black, a fashion researcher at LCF said. "There are already skiing jackets with iPod control switches built into the sleeve material, for instance. So with BT and others we are investigating technologies the fashion industry can harness to meet consumers' heightened expectations." London College of Fashion and U.K. telecoms firm BT envision "putting your address book and photo album on in the morning along with your socks" and "clothes peppered with plastic LEDs that let you change the fabric's pattern at will."
