Visual Remote for iPods
Advanced Technetix has launched its Consumer Products Division with the Visual Remote, a device for adjusting your iPod without taking it out of a bag or pocket. Buttons let you navigate menus and song playback, which are both displayed on a backlit LCD screen that runs out to a pair of earbuds. Power is drawn from the iPod's battery rather than an external supply. Though the current Remote is wired, Technetix promises a wireless one in the near future. No information is available on pricing or sales locations for either model.
