Using Jacquard Threads, micro-electronics, and intelligent software, Google creates textiles and materials that can understand your gestures and communicate back using light and haptic feedback.

Jacquard allows it’s partner brands to integrate connectivity and digital experiences directly into their products. As more products adopt the Jacquard platform, users will have new ways to interact with the things they love.
