Summary… * Machine-Made


#Google and Levi’s Jacquard smart jacket has introduced a new function designed to stop you from mistakenly leaving your phone behind, as spotted by Android Police.
The feature, called Always Together, is an automatic alert that will go off if the jacket moves too far away from your phone.
It’s a neat addition for the smart jacket, which can already use touch inputs to control things on your smartphone like music controls and navigation pings within #Google Maps.
Whether all of this justifies the jacket’s $350 price tag is up to you.
Levi’s has a 30 percent off sale that ends at midnight on December 9th, and that knocks the jacket’s price down to $245.

Opinion… * Man-Made
