iPod jackets aren't what we'd call "a dime a dozen," but they aren't impossible to find, either. QIO Systems is looking to take the next logical step in wearable electronics by giving gadget lovers the ability to choose which thread to wear while retaining the innate ability to play nice with one's PMP. The PANiQ controller is a removable, standardized dongle that can be attached to any piece of clothing in the burgeoning PANiQmode line of attire. Said clothing will tout inbuilt controls that will play nice with any device attached via a PANiQ module, with initial support including dock-connecting iPods / iPhones and Bluetooth devices. So far, PANiQ customers include Cole Haan, Zoo York, KILLA, iQuantum, Celio, Beaucre, and Bailo, but we're hoping that list grows exponentially in the near future.
