Popular denim brand Levi’s and Google have collaborated to produce the Levi’s Commuter x Jacquard by Google Trucker Jacket. It’s a dark blue denim jacket, but what really makes it special is that it’s a “living” jacket.
Made from Jacquard yarn, which contains metallic elements that respond to touch, the jacket would operate in a similar way to a smartphone. In the demonstration video put out by Levi’s, a cyclist taps and swipes his sleeve to get directions to his destination, and to change his playlist.
There are still more questions about what else the jacket can do, but we’ll have to wait until the collection launches next year to find out the answers.
