SMART JACKET

LONDON: Later this year, Google will partner up with Levi’s to launch connected jackets. The “Commuter Trucker Jacket” will be comfortable to touch, and touch-enabled as well. The jacket will feature a cuff to link with phone via Bluetooth. Once that happens, you have swipe your finger over the jacket to answer phone calls, change the music & its volume, as well as get directions on maps. The jackets were revealed during a panel in Texas. They are made possible thanks to conductive yarns, of which these jackets are made. The Commuter Trucker Jacket will be available this fall for $350. The availability is not known as of yet but a demo is scheduled to come out soon.
