SAN FRANCISCO — In what might be the largest development in smart fabrics, Google announced a project to scale manufacturing of fabrics that use broad gestures to control mobile devices, lights, and more. Jacquard's different colored conductive yarns. Members of Google’s Advanced Technology and Projects (ATAP) team unveiled Project Jacquard , a conductive thread initiative, at its annual developer conference (May 29). Jacquard has been in development since early 2014 and makes it possible to weave touch and gesture interactivity into any textile using standard, industrial looms. “The structure of a capacitive touch sensing device is very similar to that of a woven fabric,” ATAP Design Lead Carsten Schwesig told EE Times. “The core of what we’re doing is replacing some of these yarns with conductive yarns.” Traditional conductive yarns present several issues when it comes t...
