Join us next Wednesday to hear from thought leaders and entrepreneurs on the topic of truly wearable technology in the form of smart fabrics, e-textiles, and clothing that connects us to all things internet. From fabrics that change color with your movement to textile sensors that monitor oxygen levels for firefighters – the potential for intelligent clothing is unlimited. Although researchers believe it will be another 20 years until products like these are made commercially available, that hasn’t slowed down companies like Adidas, Under Armour, Nike, and Reebok from exploring the potential for connected apparel.Soon enough wearable tech watches will become archaic when the very shirt and pants you are wearing can provide data on everything from muscle exertion and skin temperature to who is tweeting you.
In this session we will discuss the current state of smart fabrics, where the industry is moving, and how the leaders in connected clothing are breaking away from the pack.
