These new smart clothes will interact with your mobile device via sensors that are woven into the fabric, and your favorite blues will behave like a touchscreen. Since Project Jacquard will eventually make it possible to weave interactivity into any fabric using standard industrial looms, the possibilities are endless for designers. But don't rush to replace your favorite skinnies too quickly—Project Jacquard, which was announced at I/O, Google's annual developers' conference, is still in the early stages of development.
