Google and Yves Saint Laurent have released a “smart” backpack with Google Assistant for $ 995

In 2017, Google, together with Levi’s, released a “smart” jacket. And although it is no longer for sale, Google

continued to release smart clothes with the new Cit-e backpack.

What it is

The backpack was created in collaboration with Yves Saint Laurent, but does not differ in a catchy design: it is a strict black color, without unnecessary details, but from high-quality materials.

“Brain” backpack - Jacquard platform, whichprovides synchronization with a smartphone and other “smart” functions. More precisely, its updated version: now the platform has decreased in size and resembles an SD card. Data transfer occurs through the microUSB connector.

Jacquard is installed in the left shoulder strap of the backpack. As a result, you can call the Google Assistant and “My Day” to find out the weather, news, and upcoming events.

In addition, there is a gesture control. Jacquard recognizes four gestures: up and down, double tap and long press. They can be configured through the Project Jacquard application (which, incidentally, has also been updated).

Price

Such a backpack will cost dearly - $ 995. But Google promises to continue to produce “smart” clothes, but at more affordable prices.

True, the issue of washing such a backpack remains unclear, because a smart jacket for $ 350 could be washed only 10 times.
