Xiaomi is launching a new brand of plastic lawn chair that replaces plastic chairs with a smart fabric.
The MiCare smart fabric is similar to the Google Fit SmartFit, which was launched in October of last year, and it comes with built-in GPS.
The fabric is made from a 3D printed polymer that is waterproof and water repellent.
The company says the MiCare can be used for “personal and office use” and has “the lowest energy usage, the best water resistance, and the highest performance.”
The MiCares cost $179.99, which is a fraction of the cost of a standard smart fabric but still a steep price.
There are other smart fabrics that also offer similar functionality, including the $99 Fit SmartFIT, which has similar features, and also offers water resistance and water resistance with anti-static coating.
Xiaomi says the fabric is available now in the U.S. and Europe.

However, Xiaomi also says that there is currently no compatible Xiaomi Mi MIX.
The MIX is a smaller version of the Mi Cares that is slightly larger, lighter and less expensive than the Mi Care.
Xiaomi has also launched a new Xiaomi MiMEX smart fabric that uses the same technology, but the fabric uses a new plastic material called Mi MEXX instead of Mi MREX.
MiMexx is available in Europe, North America and Asia Pacific.
