The dream is near as Google-Levi’s Smart Jacket which is also world’s first of its kind is priced at a mere $350 US and what it offers is something that will dazzle you.
During SXSW, Google announced that the World’s First Smart Jacket prepared under Project Jacquard will be on sale before the end of the year at a price tag of $350.
Last year’s I/O revealed that the sleeves of the jacket would work as a capacitive touchpad which will work according to the gestures.
It is supposed to be fully featured with functions such as playing music, time telling, health meters and many other features.
The Project Jacquard can turn the technology into any fabric and feature the amazing options as it is. This could very well be a brave attempt in revolutionizing the clothing industry.
However, it isn’t sure if the core features would be available to third-party dealers and retailers and for now, the jacket is focused on doing smartphone specific tasks such as playing music, answering phone and texting etc.
It is also teased that the manufacturer can make the touchscreen visible or invisible as per their requirements. As for now, Google-Levi’s Smart Jacket will only work with Android devices efficiently as other developers won’t have prime access to its core features.[via-Mashable]
