There is a whole industry dealing with the so-called intelligent textile products. “In the last 10 to 15 years, there were many EU supported research projects on smart textiles but maybe they came too early,” says Christian Stammel, CEO of Wearable Technologies, a technology company developing intelligent products like watches, glasses, wristbands or accessories, based in Herrsching am Ammersee, Germany. Today, we have the smartphone with a strong computing power and the capability to connect different devices to the cloud. “That’s why the topic of smart textiles and smart clothes has become more important now.”
