Levi's jacket can now control your smartphone
For all the bicycle lovers out there, taking out your phone every five minutes, checking the address, changing music and making sure you don’t get hit by a car is a struggle. But now there is jacket which can control your Smartphone and you don't have to sacrifice your style as it's from the denim king Levi's and in collaboration with Google.
The two companies unveiled the Levi's Commuter Trucker Jacket during SXSW 2017 in Austin. The classic denim jacket has a touchpad built into its left sleeve keeping the urban bikes in mind. All the cyclists ever have to do is either tap it or swipe it to access their mobile phone apps.
The way it works: Google’s Project Jacquard weaves conductive yarns, connectors, and sensor grids (so, a tiny touchpad) into fabrics that brands then sew into clothing. The sensor, which is powered by a rechargeable battery, then transmits data to your phone whenever you touch it.
“Anyone on a bike knows that navigating your screen while navigating busy city streets isn’t easy – or a particularly good idea,” said Paul Dillinger, head of global product innovation for Levi Strauss & Co. “This jacket helps to resolve that real-world challenge by becoming the co-pilot for your life, on and off your bike.”
