Eleksen Vista SideShow Bag

Eleksen has just demonstrated a unique approach to Microsoft's new OS through its Vista SideShow messenger bag. Using Eleksen's own smart fabric for control, the bag integrates a 2.5-inch LCD, processor, and 1GB of flash memory to take advantage of Windows Vista's SideShow feature. By connecting a notebook PC stored inside, the SideShow display can synchronize e-mail, contacts, and even music or photos from its host computer which can be read or played without having to turn on the computer or open the bag.

Although the existing design is currently a reference design and will not be sold by Eleksen itself, the company says it will soon license its technology to others and should have the messenger bag on sale by summer for $250, alongside other Sideshow devices. A likely partner is G-Tech, which recently introduced a Bluetooth messenger bag using smart fabric.
