What is Google Project Jacquard?

Project Jacquard is a new system for weaving technology into fabric, transforming everyday objects, like clothes, into interactive surfaces. Project Jacquard will allow designers and developers to build connected, touch-sensitive textiles into their own products. This is just the beginning, and we’re very excited to see what people will do with it.

Google Jacquard X Levi’s Commuter JAcket

How to make an interactive textile?

By replacing some of the normal fabric in textiles with conductive thread any fabric can be converted into an interactive piece of cloth which can recognize a variety of touch gestures similar to touch screens in a mobile phone.

Jacquard X Levi’s Commute Jacket

Google Jacquard partnered with Levi’s to produce it’s first interactive and ready to wear Denim Jacket “Levi’s Commuter“.

Levi’s Commuter is just like any other jacket but has Jacquard tech woven in it.

It also comes with a snap tag which connects the Jacquard threads in the jacket’s cuff to your mobile phone. The snap tag provides haptic and light feedback about incoming calls and other incoming notification.

Jacquard works with the rideshare apps, Lyft and Uber

The snap tag is battery powered and can last up to 2 weeks between USB charges.
