ABSTRACT
The article focuses on smart or intelligent textiles. Such textiles describe fabrics and garments that have some active sense and respondability. An example of such product is the ZetexPlus fabric, a proprietary coating that enables it to conduct heat radially along the fabric surface rather than through it. The implementation of wearable computing is possible through MIThril and Smart Fabrics. The potential application of integrating wearable technology with communication is through a personal health monitoring system. Another application of smart or intelligent textiles is through tactile displays. These displays offer a viable way for people to interact with wearable computers. They can solve issues of intrusive computers and multiple demands on user visual and audio attentio.
