Google and Levi's Creating Smart Jeans

Google and Levi's Are Making Smart Jeans That Will Blow Your Mind

We know fashion and technology can go hand in hand — have you seen the prettiest Apple Watches? — and now Google is taking the concept of wearable tech to the next level. At its annual I/O conference, the company announced that it's teaming up with Levi's to create jeans that can act as touch screens.

Google's Advanced Technology and Projects (ATAP) division is leading the experiment, known as Project Jacquard, in hopes that these high-tech jeans will one day be practical in the real world. Ivan Poupyrev, who leads ATAP, explained to Wired that it works by creating a two-layer system that sandwiches electronics in between two fabrics. Originally, they had weaved conductive threads into fabrics but discovered that this disrupted the power and data between the electronics and the yarn.

Although the project is still in prototype mode, Google and Levi's vision is for computerized jeans that can help you answer your smartphones (without actually touching your smartphone). The ultimate goal is to bring these conductive yarns to every fabric in the world. See how the process is coming together in the short video below. Crazy!
