Mac peripheral maker and distributor Dr. Bott has announced the
AMP Interface for iPod. It’s designed to enable users of the Burton Amp Jacket to use the new iPods introduced this week.
Burton’s Amp Jacket was introduced by Apple CEO Steve Jobs during his keynote presentation to attendees of January’s Macworld Conference & Expo. It’s a piece of specialty outerwear designed by the popular snowboarding company that sports built-in, waterproof controls and a hidden pocket for an iPod, enabling skiers and snowboarders to listen to their favorite tunes and control their iPods while they’re on the slopes without having to expose the iPod to the elements.
Apple’s new iPods — introduced Monday by Jobs during a special event in San Francisco — feature new capacities, a new interface and a slimmer new design that features a dock interface on the bottom of the unit.
Dr. Bott’s AMP Interface replaces the interface of the Burton Amp Jacket with one that incorporates the remote connector and headphone jack of the new iPod.
The new AMP Interface retails for US$24.95 and will be available in May.
