Two teams of researchers led by Professor Barbara Layne of Concordia University, Montreal and Professor Janis Jefferies at Goldsmiths, University of London, UK, as part of the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences – 2010, have induced research in intelligent textiles to take it to a new height.

These scientists have established an incredible high-end concept of interactive apparel, wherein, physical and emotional state of an individual's body, strikes off the return of personalized memory, back to him/her.

First-of-its-kind seen in the ever-growing field of intelligent textiles, this project is named, Wearable Absence and it makes use of a system of devices that can be worn by a person.

Fashionable designs created with a combination of exceptionally crafted adaptors and soft cabling systems, these first-of-its-kind apparels consist of wireless technologies and bio-sensing devices to trigger a data of sounds and pictures, which will help form a speech or string of messages, from a lifeless person.

A lifeless person's, who is made to wear the apparel, temperature, moisture, rate of respiration and heart rate can be recorded with the help of the above-mentioned technologies embedded within the apparel. The data thus received, will be prompted through the internet to another modern database, which will return messages back to the apparel.

Messages, which help bring back memories of a lifeless person, could be portrayed in the form of either voice recordings or songs, which can be relayed via speakers stitched in to hood or shoulder seams. The same can also be depicted via scrolling text on a group of LED again sewn within the fabric, or video and photographic imagery.

For instance, if an individual is suffering from stress, sorrow or misery, the bio-sensors will trigger the individual's clothing to receive, a variety of messages that will help provide the individual with comfort.

This latest technology, conjointly with textiles, emotional tracking and receptive technologies can boot human experience, with increased potential for the field of healt-care and well-being.
