Now, you may be picturing Marty McFly in a self-drying jacket, but Google’s Advanced Technology and Products (ATAP) division teamed up with Levi’s to design a denim jacket that uses ATAP’s Jacquard Technology. This technology was introduced in 2015 as a type of conductive fabric that can turn any article of clothing into a connected “device” from which you can send commands to your smart phone. It pretty much takes the idea and abilities of a smartwatch, but makes it invisible, and a little more fashion forward.This jacket is expected to hit the shelves this fall and will be priced at $350.
