The upcoming Smart Fabrics + Wearable Technology conference (April 23-25 in SF) has an interview with Clothing+ founder and CEO Akseli Reho:
You will be covering forgettable sensors as part of your talk – without giving away too much of your presentation, can you tell us what role do sensors play in the garment as a technology hub concept?
Garments serve as the perfect base to integrate technology into. People are in contact with textiles virtually 24/7 in clothing, furniture and bed linen. Its touch is natural to our skin and thus a perfect medium to interface our biosignals.
You have been a long standing participant of the Smart Fabrics (now Smart Fabrics and Wearable Technology) – can you share with new comers to the event why you come back every year and what makes the event such a unique networking and learning opportunity?
Smart Fabrics and Wearable Technology has long been a great marketing and even sales medium for Clothing+ for the audience it gathers. This is where we as a supplier and manufacturer meet and address potential customers, present our company and products and convey the message that textile-integrated sensors are available in mass-production right now.
