Intelligent or smart fabrics (E-textiles) make clothes more than
fashionable or useful: they become part of a new genre in the
wearable movement. Working together, many types of sensors
integrated into one larger garment can tell different stories and
unlock new possibilities.
Clothes will have beacon-like technology to control/inform
surroundings. Clothing articles will transform based on environment
and activities, and also sustain desired body temperatures.
Through Bluetooth technology, clothing will communicate body
status to core devices that track performance, state, etc. for you
and your healthcare provider.
