BeBop, the wearable sensor producing company, created by musical instrument inventor Keith McMillen and KMI has successfully launched its first product, the BeBop Wearable Smart Fabric Sensor, the ultra thin wearable smart fabric sensor.

The smart fabric sensor measures all aspects of physicality, including bend, location, motion, rotation, angle, and torque. Employing BeBop’s patented proprietary Monolithic Fabric Sensor Technology, BeBop fabric sensors continuously provide real-time reporting for markets, including clothing and protective wear.

BeBop measures actual physicality to sense and display 3D maps of data. Fundamental, tested, and extensible with over a million sensors already in daily use through KMI’s musical instrument products, BeBop’s Monolithic Fabric Sensors integrate sensors, traces, and electronics into a single piece of fabric to provide greater sensitivity, resolution, range of deployment, and robustness.

BeBop’s variety of solutions available now for integration into new wearable products include, wearable controllers for sleeves of jackets or shirts to connect to smartphones to answer calls, adjust volume or select songs—all while the smartphone remains in the user’s pocket. BeBop Wearable Sensor Markets include clothing and protective wear.

BeBop uses smart fabrics to create elegant sensor solutions for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) with its patented technology to incorporate into their products, ranging from basic sensors to complete wireless solutions with advanced power management. Visualization programs for any design with an easily-modified SDK (Software Developer’s Kit) allows manufacturers to create custom apps by choosing from a variety of 2D and 3D representations and colors or by driving the BeBop data into whole new applications.
