EVOLUTION IN TEXTILES…

Throughout the history of mankind, much of human innovation was centered around textiles. They were a second skin used to protect and enhance people’s lives. In more recent times, textile hasn’t really evolved much. The industrial revolution gave us steam engines and cars. The invention of the transistor gave us computers and cell phones. We went from typewriters to computers in cell phones in a span of 40 years. Where have we gone with garments?

EVOLUTION OF MANKIND…

Think of a world where the next generation of humans are hybrids, augmented by robotic limbs, implantables and a neural lace. That’s a scary thought. Why not choose clothing as a medium to allow humans to do things we never thought possible; but keeping us human in the process.

 

WE ARE HERE TO MAKE TEXTILES RELEVANT AGAIN.

Introducing: Textile Computing

How will we do this? Think of us as a second skin. We turn your clothing into a computer – smart, connected, sensing and actuating. This will allow us track and control everything about ourselves in a way that has never been possible before.

WHY CLOTHING?

Easy. Everyone uses it. We’ve been wearing garments our entire lives. It requires little habit change. It isn’t hard to go from wearing regular garments to smart garments. In recent times, it feels as if technology has become more of a nuisance than an enabler. To interact with our technology you don’t need to add anything to your wrist, or buy a new gadget for your bedside table. Just wake up in the morning, get dressed and get on with your day like you’ve done every day of your life.

Technology’s job is to help make our lives easier.

WHY PLATFORM?

SKIIN has a lot of sensors. Many more than other wearable devices on the market. The amount of data generated by a person wearing a SKIIN garment is massive. The different combinations of sensors will allow for near unlimited use cases. In order to tackle this broad range of possible experiences created by the diversity of Skiin sensors, we are working with 3rd party app developers to build experiences using biodata collected from a Skiin user.
