Visual Remote for iPod
Advanced Technetix has unveiled its Visual Remote, a device for adjusting an iPod without taking it out of a bag or pocket. Buttons allow users to navigate menus and song playback, via a backlit LCD screen that runs out to a pair of earbuds, according to Electronista. The device draws power from the iPod's battery rather than an external supply, and although the current Remote is wired, Technetix promises a wireless model in the near future (pricing and availability were unavailable).
