Motorola and Burton Launch the Audex Jacket SeriesBluetooth enabled jacket (January 25, 2006)
Kicking off the winter sports season, Motorola Inc. and Burton Snowboards today announce the commercial availability of the Bluetooth-enabled Audex Jacket Series.
Motorola and Burton are also expanding their global relationship with the newly formed TEAMMOTO -- a Motorola-sponsored snowboarding team comprised of Burton riders from across the globe.
TEAMMOTO consists of elite riders including Hannah Teter (USA), Luke Mitrani (USA), Marko Grilc (Slovenia), Jussi Oksanen (Finland), Tadashi Fuse (Japan), and Kazuhiro Kokubo (Japan). More information on TEAMMOTO can be found at http://www.hellomoto.com/burton.
The new Audex jacket allows winter sports enthusiasts to experience seamless connectivity -- at the touch of a button -- from one environment to the next. The product was jointly developed by Motorola and Burton to bring wearable technology to active consumers.*
At the center of the Audex jacket is a control panel located on the left- hand sleeve, allowing for simple and easy access to your incoming and outgoing calls, and music selections. Connect a compatible Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone** to the panel wirelessly, while hooking up your iPod(R) player via hidden, unobtrusive wires within the jacket. Speakers and a microphone are located in the hood for taking and making calls as well as listening to music.
The Audex jacket is the first in a line of products co-developed by Motorola and Burton. The next products, the Audex Protective Gear, are expected to be available this month. The gear includes the Audex Helmet and Audex Padded Hat, both equipped with Bluetooth stereo headphones, featuring easy-to-use control buttons for convenient and wireless on-the-go talking or music-listening.
