Technology is twirling not only in cars and electronics but also in fashion trends. The future of fashion is here enveloped with love for technology. Whether its Levi’s or Ralph Lauren, merchandising industry is going super hi-tech.
Technology is revolutionizing the way we use and connect to clothes. Check out the latest from the world of fashion and technology:-
Last year, Google and Levi’s announced they were partnering on Project Jacquard to develop a fabric that can send commands to your smartphone via gestures like tapping or swiping. Jacquard, a blank canvas for the fashion industry, has developed innovative techniques to attach the conductive yarns to connectors and tiny circuits, no larger than the button on a jacket. These miniaturized electronics capture touch interactions, and various gestures can be inferred using machine-learning algorithms. The company believes that connected clothes offer new possibilities for interacting with services, devices, and environments.
Ralph Lauren offers the PoloTech Shirt that works with an iPhone® or Apple Watch® to put real-time workout data in the palm of your hand and also offers live biometrics, adaptive workouts and more. Silver fibers woven directly into the fabric read heart rate and breathing depth and balance, as well as other key metrics, which are streamed to your device via a detachable, Bluetooth-enabled black box.
