Wearing clothes has become such a common thing nowadays but few thousand years ago it was unusual. Things began to change when Homo Sapiens realised that being naked not only disturbs the community pairing but also expose them to fire and water causing health concerns. Clothes or we say other leather and leaves became a protection from winds, water and fire. Since everything around us is getting smarter then why not Smart Fabric?

What is Smart Fabric?

The future of clothing is about to change in a big way and smart fabric is paving the way for it. It just your old comfortable fabric with new technologies woven within to get you more out of them. Today, when you buy a cloth, the tag on it tells you its price, color or even its washability. But with smart fabric, it is going to be more technical. The Smart Fabric will be the revolution, as it will be closer to skin than any of other smart devices like headset, watch or arm band. Many moods of the body will be defined  through the fabrics which as an interface, shall help in the communication, entertainment and may be to understand our own selves through a mobile app.

The Approach

The basic idea is to make the technology invisible by shrinking it and implanting it into the cloth itself. The small the device the higher its expression of technology. Even the giant Google has paved into this by collaborating with Levi’s on its Project Jacquard. It is making a fabric that can interact and communicate with other smart devices to provide you a completely different experience altogether.

Technology

By implanting micro-sensors straightaway within material, the device aids in measuring the body’s heat and motion. By getting interconnected with other devices,  it collects and analyses data for sports, health and wellness markets, and has built a smart fabric data management platform. The sensor-based fabric is believed to be perfect for understanding the functions of human body. When other wearable like bands and belts move in different angles and directions with the motion of body, the sensors on fabric stays on.

Such fabric can also be beneficial for the use by the military. A smart fabric is been made, which has a flexible circuit board that drastically reduced the number of batteries carried by a soldier into combat. Such product has been area of interest for many military organisations even US Army and US Marine Corps. Some smart fabrics are being developed which can have ability to utilise the static electricity to charge mobile devices and other wearables. Such smart clothes can be very beneficial during the time of emergency when there is lack of traditional electricity sources and natural sources like solar energy could be the way to survive.

Smart fabric will play a very vital role in any sector that relies on the well-being of the human body because fabric in combination with IoT technology has what the fittest bodies possess — rigour and adaptability.
