Textile Innovation: Project Jacquard

Google_Levis_Project_Jacquard_01

Google and Levi’s have entered into partnership to develop a collection of smart textiles that will be able to transform any garment into an interactive system.

Project Jacquard will use conductive threads embedded into fabric that respond to gesture-based movements and register data with complimentary computers that power any textile-based wearable. Information will then be transmitted to mobile phones and other devices.

USP: Collaborations between fabric and technology experts push the boundaries of material innovation, resulting in new developments for textile based wearables.
