Two of the biggest names in the fashion and tech industries have combined to create a smart jacket that's made to fit your life on the move. Levi's and Google have create Jacquard, a tech-enabled jacket that, at first glance, looks like a normal jacket, but hidden in its left sleeve is a bluetooth device that can send you notifications from your phone, play music and give you GPS directions, all from specific gestures you assign from the Jacquard app.
