Our jackets are going to get a whole lot smarter thanks to Google and other companies involved in the wearables business. Levi’s Commuter Trucker Jacket is a smart garment with Jacquard woven in. It connects you to your digital devices, allowing you to handle calls, navigate, and control your music more conveniently.
Here is how it works:
Gesture-sensing Jacquard Threads are woven into the cuff and wirelessly connected to your mobile phone using tiny electronics embedded inside the sleeve and a flexible snap tag. The snap tag also notifies you about incoming phone calls or text messages¹ with light and haptic feedback. The gestures on the jacket cuff are fully re-configurable
You can buy these starting 9/27.
