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.
