SideShow backpacks: Cheaters rejoice

Windows Vista screen woven into fabric

Last week brought a slew of CES products demonstrating how the new Windows Vista SideShow would work, from media players to laptops . But the most practical application may not involve a traditional piece of hardware at all.

Eleksen, maker of the fabric keyboard , continues to weave their technologies into textiles with its "Wearable Display Module," according to Laptoping. This little gadget has a 2.46-inch color LCD and can store 1GB of data, controlled by a fabric interactive touchpad with seven buttons, that can be sewn into bags, backpacks or even your clothes.

Teachers, beware: This could bring a whole new level to classroom cheating.
