A Fashion Forward Jacket


Your next hi-tech device could be hanging in your closet.

Google has announced that it has partnered up with Levi’s to create a technology laced jacket that is set to be released next spring. It's called Jacquard and Google says the project has been in development since last year.

Besides being comfortable and resistant to the elements the jacket comes equipped with tiny sensors that connect to various services on your smartphone such as calls, texts, Google maps and Spotify. So if you're wearing the jacket and your phone rings you can wave your hand over the sleeve to either accept or decline the call. You can also run your finger up and down your wrist cuff to turn your music up and down or swipe to get to the next song.  read more »
