Google And Levi’s Team Up For Jackets

Over the past few years, Google has been working on wearable tech in the form of Project Jacquard where they team up with Levi’s. The company has since released a jacket with Project Jacquard technology built into it, but it was not cheap.

If you wanted to check it out, but couldn’t bring yourself to spend the amount of $350, we have some good news. Levi’s and Google have announced several brand new Project Jacquard trucker jackets that come with second-gen tech, and will also come with a more affordable price tag.

As far as features, it seems to be similar to the previous-gen jackets. There will be a section on the sleeves that is touch-sensitive, where users will be able to interact with their mobile devices. But unlike the previous design, the newer version of the tech is smaller and is said to be just a bit larger than an SD card.

With the smaller form factor, it allows for integration in more kinds of clothing. There will also be new features, like triggering a photo on your phone’s camera, getting a personalized briefing, and a new “Ask Assistant” feature. The new jackets are a bit cheaper at $198 for the Classic Trucker and $248 for the Sherpa Trucker. Both will be available in men’s and women’s sizes.
