Eleksen Group plc has announced its Wearable Display Module (WDM) for Microsoft Windows SideShow, a computer auxiliary display product for integration into soft-goods such as bags, backpacks and clothing. Eleksen’s Wearable Display Module is the world’s first development of computer display technology for this market and makes carry products into extensions of laptops and mobile computers.
The Wearable Display Module can be easily integrated into soft-goods like briefcases and backpacks and provides the first “in-bag screen” available for computer products. It lets consumers connect their carry cases directly to their computer and view data like e-mail, appointments and other information from the bag’s exterior, on the go, without needing to open the bag or access the Windows Vista-based device.
The company says its product paves the way for a range of new soft-goods products and transforms traditional bags and backpacks into soft electronic devices. Designed to support the Windows SideShow feature in Windows Vista, an auxiliary or secondary display on a laptop, Eleksen’s WDM works with any application designed for Windows Vista-based devices to support a variety of information and other functions. The display can be used to easily view the critical information users need, whether the laptop is on, off, or in sleep mode.
The Eleksen Wearable Display Module is a 2.46 inch Active TFT LCD screen, storage for data files and an ElekTex interactive fabric touchpad to control application management and data display. The product supports 7-button controls including a dedicated MENU and BACK button as well as 4 navigation buttons and a GO button.
