AUSTIN, Texas -

(NBC News) Tech companies are taking the opportunity to showcase their latest innovations at the SXSW conference in Austin, Texas.

Google and Levis teamed up on a smart jacket that connects with your smartphone and features a touch-screen sleeve, while security company Knightscope is using an artificial intelligence robot to fight crime.

The conference continues through Sunday, March 19. Online: https://www.sxsw.com/
