Google, Levi's partner to create smart clothing, a new type of wearable tech

Recommended Posts

SAN FRANCISCO, May 30 (UPI) -- Fashion trends of the future might have more to do with connectivity than runways, and Google knows it.

The company's Advanced Technology and Projects division (ATAP) and Levi's are working to create clothing that connects to mobile devices using special, "smart" yarn that transforms textiles into touchscreens. That means not only clothing, but furniture, house decor and even car seats would become extensions of our devices.


"If you can weave the sensor into the textile, as a material," ATAP program lead Ivan Poupyrev said, "you're moving away from the electronics. You're making the basic materials of the world around us interactive."


was thinking one day, we could have wifi -smart clothing.:DWsKVPL:
