Google is working on creation of smart clothes with Levi Strauss
Google has announced that it is working with the most well known brand and the U.S. Jeanmaker, Levi Strauss, to create woven fabric clothing that makes use of touch screen for controlling. In San Francisco, the Titan had revealed its new project names “Jacquard” and said that the Levi Strauss is its partner.
The project Jacquard has been named after the inventor of a type of a loom. The project is handed over to a small team of Google that is called the Advanced Technology and Projects (ATAP) and it is quite different from the Google lab that innovates things that have big vision like a self driving car. ATAP said that they are setting up an area that looks like a cloth is coming from the loom. It is done with special threads that are woven into an array of fabrics that are made to stand out visually and go unnoticed depending on the need of the designer. It can be conducted to the desired parts of the fabric and can be spread all over the cloth. It is stretchable and is also washable. It seems as if people have controlled lights or used finger strokes on the computer screen and a blue cloth that covers a table is displayed from behind. It functions just like a normal fabric. Any fabric (suit or dress or furniture or carpet) has the potentially to have computer touch pad that has controlling capability.
