Smart Clothes & Wearable Technology




Smart Clothes & Wearable Technology


A fascinating multi-disciplinary symposium on Smart Clothes which is one of many symposia put together by Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University .

The audience for this Smart Clothes symposium included leading designers and educators from RISD, Mass Art, Harvard and others focused on new materials innovation and driving concepts in smart clothing. 

So what does this have to do with fibers? Materials are core to the practice of fibers and the inherent knowledge of fiber practitioners is becoming more valuable than ever as technology becomes literally interwoven in fiber structures. 

This video segment is one of many that are fascinating and an important beacon to anyone working in fibers and especially interested in the intersection of fibers, technology and science disciplines.
