Google And Levis Team Up In Making Smart Jacket; Specs, Price And More Unveiled
Google and Levis is bringing smart gadgets to a whole new level as its smart jacket will soon be released to the market. After two years since the first teaser for its Project Jacquard has been out to the public, the incorporation of technology and clothing is now set to launch really soon.
Smart Wear Brought To A New Level
According to Ars Technica, the smart jacket behind Google and Tesla's collaboration is called as the Levi's Commuter Trucker jacket. It will be out in the market this coming fall at a price tag of $350.
During the Google I/O conference last year, it has been unveiled that the smart jacket will have a capacitive touchpad located in its left sleeve. The wearer can then control it by tapping or swiping, just like how one uses a tablet or a smartphone.
It will also be connected to a smartphone app to allow greater control. One example is getting to tap the left sleeve twice, in order to bring up your playlist and start listening to music.
Meanwhile, swiping it allows you to know the time. It has also been reported that the touchpad will be powered by a rechargeable tag that is about the size of a peanut. This will be clipped inside the sleeve.
Planned For More Future Improvements
According to Mashable, the smart jacket will have a battery life of up to two days. However, Ivan Poupyrev, project lead of the Project Jacquard, said that they are not ruling out the possibility of increasing its battery life in the near future.
Meanwhile, the fabric of Jacquard is made up of a specially woven conductive yarn. Poupyrev then adds that the conductive yarn can be woven into various types of fabrics.The main purpose of it is to enable smart tech connectivity on the clothing of the smart jacket. The smart jacket is the first project of Google's Advanced Technology and Projects (ATAP) group. The group will soon be experimenting and developing prototypes of other hi-tech gadgets.
