In the emerging, amorphous Internet of Things (IoT), we find many expressions of technology: smart home, connected car, even the smart factory. Of all of the nascent markets in which low cost sensors and wireless connectivity are making new products and services possible, none have the potential to impact as many people in such a profound way as smart fabrics. The connected car can make your commute more efficient or productive via autonomous driving; the smart home can improve energy efficiency dramatically and illuminate new ways of improving our use of resources and time; the smart factory can enable faster, more efficient and safer work environments that in turn produce more advanced products at steadily declining costs. Smart fabrics, however, offer the opportunity to measure, analyze and inform the trajectory of our lives.
