Smart clothes are coming and Levi’s has fired the opening salvo.
Starting on soon, you’ll be able to pick up the Levi’s Commuter Trucker jacket with a smart sleeve that connects to your phone through Bluetooth.
The touch-sensitive fabric that makes this possible has been coming for a while now.
Google showed off the tech a couple of years ago and Levi’s officially announced the jacket a little more than a year ago.
The technology comes out of Google’s ATAP division.
The jacket integrates capacitive threads with copper cores into the jacket.
