24/7 Charger Jeans

Footwear That Leads The Way
How about this for amazing – Lechal. Imagine if your shoes told you which way to go without you ever having to take your eyes off the road or sidewalk. “Slip into your smart footwear, set your destination in your app, and let Lechal show you the way through gentle vibrations”.

It logs your activity, so that you can keep track of your fitness.
Google And Levi’s designed a piece of clothing different from others. It appears to be as normal as any denim but it’s not: it has a conductive yarn that enables touch interactivity. Users can tap, swipe or hold on the left cuff of the sleeve to fulfill simple tasks like changing music tracks, blocking or answering calls or accessing navigation information (delivered by voice). All functions that can be sustained while riding in place of having to pull a phone out to do them.
