Whether you are making your way around with your bicycle, playing mobile real money slots or going to the gym; e-garments are all about connectivity. Monitoring and capturing data like your heart rate and emotions. No longer do you need your wallet to pay for Starbucks; e-garments tailor-made this facility into their products.
A Back History
The birth of Walkman in 1979 started a trend that few could have anticipated. A mobile device strapped onto your hip that supplied hours of entertainment. In 1987 the first digital hearing aid amazed the market followed by numerous wearable devices with features like Bluetooth in 2001, ultimately extending to the latest iPhone watch, which launched in 2013. Let us also not forget GoPro, which made its debut in 2004.

This anti-bacterial clothing is a huge leap forward, especially in the sport world where sweat and fungi has a negative impact on athlete’s health.
It’s not your ordinary clothing; it’s a new breed of advanced tech clothing, which allows the human spirit to push itself further than ever before.
Water and stain resistance is not a new concept and neither is anti-static fabric. But for the most part features like Google Maps, answering and ending calls and collection of personal performance data is what is captivating the market currently.
Smart garments have built in technology such as batteries, light computer components and electronics embedded in the fibre providing added value to the textile. Smart garments can either be aesthetically pleasing or performance enhancing.
These E-Textiles are precisely the undertaking of modern technology where humanity meets a forward thinking consciousness that accepts and defines a new way of life. This new way of life affords humans with the capability to transcend normality. We are becoming cyborgs with each new development in technology, and we are reaping the fruits with new age tech that continues to make life more and more governable.
