Scosche has announced its new Freestyle line of RF remotes for the fifth-generation iPod and iPod nano. Both RF remotes offer up to a 150-foot range, the signal capability to travel through walls, and can control basic functions (play/pause, on/off, volume, track and RWD/FFD) plus the random song feature and access playlists. Both $70 remotes—the Scosche NRF remote for the iPod nano and the IPRF-Doc remote for the 5G iPod—are available in black and feature pass-through dock connector ports and audio-input jacks.

They should do one of these on a watch, it’d only take four buttons. That way you could use it in your pocket, or in the house. And maybe they could even get a tasteful designer, like phillip starck to do it.

audio OUTPUT jack, right?  I have been waiting patiently (not so patient anymore) for high quality recording with the ipod.  It was advertised on the specs.  Where is my audio INPUT?

Well, at least the get a point for having a passthrough port.  I’d considerit if I didn’t have the Apple Remote/Universal Dock already.
