Clothing that could be plausibly called “smart” has been available for years. But it is only recently that this product category has shifted out of the niche status and many expect it will become a significant revenue generator for firms at all levels of the clothing supply chain; from materials suppliers to retailers.
One key reason for this is that powerful new sensor and smart materials technology is becoming commercially available that provides for a seamless integration between aesthetically pleasing clothing materials and electronic devices. A new technological discipline – fibertronics – has emerged that is intended to make this integration even tighter. Meanwhile, new smart materials are emerging that make it possible for clothing to sense heat, touch, biological phenomena, etc.
