Google’s New Smart Jacket

Google teamed up with Levi's for the latest in wearable technology

Google’s been trying and failing to make wearable technology happen for a while now (see: Google Glasses) but their newest offering actually looks pretty cool.

Google has basically created a “smart textile”, which can be sewn into the jacket. It connects to a control device on the button of the left sleeve and when you have your phone in your pocket, you can use the ¬†cuff for basic commands like skipping songs or declining calls.

It might be a good option for people who wants to stay connected by not stare at their phone every time they get a notification and it’s way more stylish than Google Glasses ever were. It comes out later this year.
