These smart clothes will do everything from charge your phone to monitor your workout
We have yet to see smart clothing integrated into our daily lives, but fashion brands are developing unique ways to combine fashion with technology.Whether it's tracking your workout or charging your phone, these clothing options show how fashion is moving in a technologically-focused direction.
Here's a look at the smart clothing options out there right now:
Designer Pauline van Dongen creates clothing capable of capturing solar energy so you can charge your phone on your person. Her latest is a wearable solar shirt, which is embedded with 120 solar cells. It captures enough energy in bright sunlight to charge your phone in a couple of hours.
There's also a solar parka that comes with one thin, waterproof solar panel attached to the coat's front pocket. "When in full sun, the solar panel generates enough energy to fully charge a smartphone battery within two hours," the website reads. Those interested in the designs can sign up for emails about future sales.
Ralph Lauren created a biotech shirt that will collect data about your workout, such as your heart rate and the number of calories burned, and send them to an app on your smartphone.
The metrics are also sent in real-time to a Bluetooth-enabled black box that can be attached to the shirt. The box will make you aware of your metrics, like if you're under your target heart rate, by talking to you.
Fashion brand Joe's Jeans created a line of jeans that will charge your iPhone while it's in your pocket.
The pocket comes with a built-in sleek battery and cord to top your phone up when you're running low.
Mimo's high-tech onesie uses sensor technology to monitor your baby's breathing, temperature, and activity while sleeping. The sensor comes in the form of an adorable turtle decoration attached to the onesie.The onesie will send alerts and a nightly report about your baby's sleep to an app on your smartphone.
The sensors can evaluate things like how hard you're working your muscles and whether you're building muscle symmetrically on both sides. The clothes are also embedded with heart rate sensors.
UK airline easyJet teamed up with clothing company CuteCircuit to create uniforms embedded with sensors and LED lights. The LEDs are embedded on jacket lapels for crew members and relay information like the flight number and destination.
