Smart Textiles: Fashion That Responds, Bryce Beamer (adidas Wearable Sport Electronics)

“As part of the Computational Fashion program series, Eyebeam presents a diverse group of designers and scientists working in cutting edge textile research and production. From nanoparticles to circuit boards, technology is becoming embedded in the very fabric of the things we wear, creating clothing that’s more responsive to changing needs and conditions. Spurred in part by collaborations between academic and industry partners, “smart textiles” are beginning to enter the consumer market to enhance the properties of a garment whether it is heating, vitamin dissemination through the fabric, weather proofing, or communication. These emerging developments are reshaping both materials and electronics for the human body.”
