Wifi enabled pants, may not be a thing of the future for much longer. Google's Project Jacquard is working on a embedding conductive threads into fabric. These threads could be used to turn the sleeves of your coat into a touch pad for your computer. Really the applications are limitless.

Highly conductive yarn that can be woven into garments - thus making them capable of interacting as an input device. Using these conductive threads means you could have a coat or a shirt that could interact with your phone, computer, smart screen - pretty much any device you need to interface with. Project Jacquard by Google is really redefining how fashion and technology can work together. The stuff Google ATAP is doing is awesome. Project Jacquard is pushing the limits of the ways we interact and think about interacting with technology.
