Debra Cobb reports from the 7th Smart Fabrics Conference
The 7th Annual Smart Fabrics Conference, held April 4 – 6 at London’s Russell Hotel, covered an array of new technologies and applications focused on making our lives easier, safer, healthier and more comfortable through the textiles we wear and use every day. Speaking at the conference, writer/editor Adrian Wilson defined Smart Fabrics as “fibre-based structures that can react to stimuli,” integrating electronics with textiles to provide new concepts for lighting, heating, cooling, energy harvesting, communicating, sensing, measuring and monitoring.
