Name: Smartphone Jacket Control
Why I like this app: Control your smartphone by swiping the sleeve of your jacket.
Google and Levi Strauss have developed a jacket that will allow you to control your smartphone by swiping either sleeve of the jacket. It’s called the Commuter Trucker Jacket. This jacket will let you answer your smartphone or control the volume of your music by simply swiping the sleeve of your jacket.
The jacket was originally designed for bicyclists but it’s clear that the jacket will have much broader application. It is waterproof which makes it perfect for sailors. There is no pricing available but is supposed to be on the market by 2017. Their next project is a self-drying jacket; think foul weather gear.
Platforms: iPhone, Android
Price: Not available yet
