Even if it looks a little too much like a purse to be completely unisex, as the designers claim it to be, the idea is a snazzy one. The Urban Performer Unit is a handbag with slick crystallized controlling, allowing you to operate your iPod from the Swarovski crystal laced surface.
The crystals indicate the iPod’s functions, incorporating an emotional feel to a smart electronic handbag. The bag doesn’t only work with iPod’s, but with most any pieces of mobile gadgets, including your PDA or cellphone. The Urban Performer Unit will be available in Christmas 2008 for the price of about $517.80.
