Google and Levi’s Commuter Trucker Jacket allows you take phone calls and more
Google, in partnership with Levi’s, unveiled its Commuter Trucker Jacket with Jacquard Google that lets you take phone calls and messages, start/stop your music, and navigate using Google Maps.
The Commuter Trucker Jacket with Jacquard by Google has touch and gesture interactivity woven into the sleeve. It has to be paired to your phone (requires a Google account) for you to be able to stay connected to your music, and navigation and you can easily control these things just by simply brushing or tapping on the sleeve.
“As we see it, this isn’t just about technology for technology’s sake – it’s about addressing a real need for our consumers on the go,” said Paul Dillinger, vice president of global product innovation for LS&Co. “This garment allows cyclists to literally navigate their rides, and manage other simple tasks, while never having to take their eyes off the road. That, to me, is the true triumph of this jacket.”
The Commuter Trucker Jacket will be available for USD350 (~17,764.25) starting Wednesday, September 27 in select stores in the U.S., and it will become available online at Levi’s website, as well as select Levi’s stores in the U.S. on October 2.
