So, we can see the broad areas of fashion and design where technology has dramatically impacted.
Smart Fabrics and its Applications
Smart fabrics or e-fabrics are clothing with embedded technology. Smart outfits used for sports can heat up or cool down based on body temperature levels. Sports jerseys monitor vital statistics like pulse and oxygen level in the body and send that information in real-time to other devices. These fabrics are trendy for health, fitness, sports, and security monitoring.
Fashion: Sometimes, smart fabrics are used for aesthetic purposes, especially in the fashion industry. Clothes or shoes with inbuilt LED or sound effects are pretty standard. We also have seen clothes and accessories that change color based on body temperature or exposure to sunlight or moisture.
Health & Fitness: On the other hand, smart fabrics have significant advantages in the health and fitness domain. The fabrics can monitor heart rate, temperature, perspiration, breathing patterns, etc., which helps take preventive measures. Also, in some industries, smart fabrics help protect against hazardous radiation.
So far, the applications of smart fabrics are limited to the fashion, health, sports, and security sectors. With the latest technological advancements, we might witness many other possibilities to flourish shortly. In addition to their monitoring capabilities, smart fabrics have the potential to revolutionize personalized health and fitness recommendations by analyzing data collected from users’ clothing and providing tailored insights for improved wellness. As technology progresses, we anticipate smart fabrics becoming an integral part of healthcare and diverse industries such as transportation, architecture, and even entertainment, paving the way for innovative and multifunctional applications.
Thus, this article gave us a glimpse of the vast possibilities when fashion meets technology. The scope is enormous and is beyond our imagination. We can expect to see a bunch of new concepts encapsulating fashion trends backed by technology in the coming years. Let us be ready to embrace the future, where combining science and creativity creates a whole new experience for us.
