Nike Amp+ remote bracelet
Nike is adding a new product to the Nike+ iPod line, according to Men's Health. The Amp+ is a Bluetooth remote bracelet that not only lets users control playback without touching their iPod, it displays relevant information from a player (such as running statistics) in real-time. The data is projected through an LED readout tucked under the black matte surface of the bracelet. The Amp+ should be released sometime in 2007 for the price of $80. The Nike+ line features shoes designed to work with special hardware and software for the iPod Nano, keeping track of runs while providing audio feedback at the same time. The lack of a remote to keep sweat off Nanos has been a noticeable issue.
