Need a unique gift for the holidays? No need to panic, think PANiQ! Back in January PANiQ introduced clothing coupled with PANiQ controllers that enable wearers to control their iPod (or iPhone) through smart fabric buttons embedded in clothing. The PANiQ technology allows you to connect your iPod to a ribbon cable embedded within the clothing using an interchangeable PANiQ controller. A Bluetooth enabled controller goes one step further and lets you pair a Bluetooth enabled phone to the buttons on your clothing. If you are crafty, PANiQ offers a DIY kit for sewing at home. Compatible with the iPhone, iPod nano, mini, classic, and touch models. Many name brands have caught on. I scoured the web to find the following brands incorporating PANiQ: Cole Haan, Zoo York, KILLA, Ralph Lauren, LimbGear, Celio, and Bailo.
