Once you start thinking the future finally here, from AI to autonomous vehicles, something new comes along that makes you think otherwise. There are so many new ideas out there that have yet to be developed and it's exciting to see what's next.
Smart Fabric? Are we in Back to the Future II? A fabric that can sense environmental changes, send tactile or audible signals to visually and hearing impaired users, or track a wearer's vital signs? A fabric that interweaves strands of fiber optics, nano-electronics, or other conductive or semi-conductive threads in it? Sounds almost like science fiction.
What's really intriguing to us is the ability to control devices wirelessly. Gives a whole new meaning to smart home, doesn't it?! A recent patent made by Apple hints the fabric control technology could be integrated into other devices, including their MacBook, iPad and Watch, but also even chairs, sofas, airplanes and more. What could you imagine seeing smart fabric being used for?
