Summary… * Machine-Made
After teasing the concept in 2016, Levi’s and Google have announced that their concept of a smart jean jacket that responds to a wearer’s touch is finally a reality.
Wipe your sleeve and you can bring up traffic information or text messages on your phone without distracting yourself from biking or walking.
The textile used combines thin metallic alloys with traditional fabrics, creating hot spots on clothing that are responsive to touch commands.
The Jacquard tech is apparently functional in almost any kind of apparel, though the companies are sticking with the coat for now.
The jacket is set to retail for $350 when it arrives this fall.
