Fashion connected: the IoT revolution in the textile sector
Although it seems straight out of a futuristic novel, already connected clothes do exist. Data exchange between these clothes and mobile devices makes them able to take calls, regulate body temperature, and show the feelings or mood of the wearer. Technology applied to fashion is a reality that advances at a vertiginous speed, but it is a bit too expensive. The athletic, labor and health fields are those who have embraced by the advances in connectivity applied to clothing and, although it is still early, it will spread to the general public and become a common sight in the streets as the fabrication becomes cheaper. For example, in 2017 Levi's and Google they conducted a large textile-technological bet with their model denim jacket Levi's Commuter Trucker Jacket. The novelty is its compatibility and connectivity with the mobile phone. With its buttons and sensors, a simple tap on the jacket sleeve can activate the music player, take a call or get directions from Google Maps.
