Wearable tech has been more and more prevalent, starting with Nike's early GPS show tracker, to the incredible smartwatches offered by major brands like Apple and Samsung today.
Google and Levi’s have taken things to a new level with the Levi's Commuter x Jacquard by Google Trucker Jacket, first demonstrated in May 2016. It has conductive yarn, interactive textiles, embedded electronics and a Bluetooth gesture system that allows fluidity and control. With just the touch of a sleeve, users will be able to access GPS, answer phone calls, and control playlists. The design is based off the Levi’s Commuter Trucker Jacket, meaning this new product is equal parts fashion and tech.
The smart jacket will drop this Autumn for US$350.
