Finally Google is into textile business by joining hands with Levi’s. Earlier Google has announced that it would develop a new smart jacket in collaboration with Levi’s. This is the Google’s first ever jacket which would hit the markets in few days. However Google should thank Levis for this super smart garment which was named commuter jacket. This new Google jacket is available for $350 and will be available in both online and offline retail stores.
Project Jacquard was earlier started by Google to bring smart electronics into garments. We have already witnessed smart shoes like Xiaomi smart sneakers. This new Google jacket comes with multi-touch sensors and smart electronics in to your wearable jackets. Levis has designed a real masterpiece with this new Commuter jacket. Levis has integrated fabrics and smart electronics.
It has designed this new jacket just like traditional jackets but with something special in it. On outside it is just a jacket but inside it has a smart electronic system. Under the sleeves it contains a touch screen which can be used as touchpad. This touchpad has various controls as it is integrated with Levis android app in your smartphone. You can touch, double tab and rub for using different functions.
This small companion is inserted in the left sleeve of the Jacket and it is rechargeable but the only flaw is it comes only two days with a single charge. With the help your jacket you can control and access various features of your smartphone. Functions like answering or rejecting call, play or pause a song and even navigations. However Google will launch a new commuter jacket API for developers to develop cases for Jacquard project.
