High Fashion Jackets Are Trackable Using Embedded Bluetooth Microchips
Asher Levine has designed new pieces for his Fall/Winter 2013 collection that pair with an app to geolocate them so you will never lose them.
If you lose a jacket in a public place, chances are you're not getting it back. But fashion designer Asher Levine has introduced a range of garments with embedded Bluetooth microchips to help you find them.
Levine unveiled his Fall/Winter 2013 unisex collection at dance school MMAC for New York Fashion Week. Some of the items, including jackets, gloves, and hats, feature the microchip, which can pair with a smartphone app and work as a tracking device.
Co.Design reports that you can press a button in the app that makes the garment “ring” so you can find it. If it's too far away, the app will display it's location using Google Maps.
