Sometime ago we had already covered a product from Elekson, the Carrypad which is an innovative keyboard made out of fabric, and it can also be used as a carry bag. The keyboard can also connect to electric devices through a Bluetooth connection, meaning that the PDA or smartphone users out there would have a full size keyboard on the go.
Eleksen recently unveiled a new product, a Slideshow bag that is supposed to work with the new feature on Windows Vista that has the same name. The Slideshow technology, developed by Microsoft, should allow Vista users to incorporate a secondary display to their computer, and through this screen they will be able to see certain information like phone numbers, the calendar or received emails without needing to turn the computer on. This technology should give more flexibility to people that is working with their notebooks throughout the day, and it should also save time and battery life.
According to Eleksen the Slideshow bag will receive the information from the PC either through a wireless Bluetooth connection or through a USB cable. The information is then stored on a memory cache, and it can be displayed on a 2,5 inch LCD screen.
“Both portrait and landscape configurations can be supported depending on the industrial design requirements. ElekTex fabric controls allow navigation and access to the information stored in the on-board memory cache. Additional controls can be added for enhanced functionality or to support new applications such as MP3 playback, photo album show, video clips, etc.”
There is no information regarding the price of the bag, but you can get more details about the product on the manufacturer’s official site.
