We have been hinting at the fact that the next generation of wearables might more “wearable” than ever. With blendable batteries and fabric embedded wearable devices, the world of wearables might be as disruptive as ever.
Smart fabrics have the potential to not only change the wearable market but also the fashion industry. A company by the name of Pireta has developed smart textile for fitness, healthcare, fashion, elite sports and even defence. The smart garment can be used for
- Component interconnects
- Printed antennas and RF circuits
- Local environment sensing
- Physiological sensors
- Energy harvesting devices
- Other sensors and transducers
There is definitely potential for first responders with this application.
