Myant, a leading provider of end-to-end textile supply chain with a state-of-the-art 3D digital fabrication and robotic knitting division, a printed electronic lab, a traditional cut and sew operation, and significant proprietary technologies, is showing SKIIN smart clothing platform at CES expo in US, which is being held from January 9 to 12, 2018.
SKIIN is a digital intelligent interface to connect every human being to self, others, IoT, and AI. Textiles will provide a bidirectional connection between peoples’ bodies and the world around. Like a second skin, this new textile computing platform can read, record, analyse, and respond to one’s needs.
SKIIN products are designed with a diverse sensor and actuator mix that enables the wearer to gain ‘holistic insight’ into their physical and mental state. SKIIN is the first product that, being comfortable and washable, is truly wearable. This allows for the option of a 24 hours a day, seven days a week connection. Given SKIIN is integrated directly in the clothing we all wear every day, it has the potential to be adopted by 100 per cent of the global population, connect to 100 per cent of the body, 100 per cent of the time.
The company’s first SKIIN products, smart underwear, and smart bras, are designed with six sensors that allow the wearers to comfortably track daily activity, sleep, and stress levels – and to connect their body to other smart Internet of Things (IoT) devices.
SKIIN brings some of the technology of a sleep lab to the wearer’s everyday life, helping understand changes during the sleep stages throughout the night. SKIIN can also control the connected environment (that is, thermostats, lighting, etc.), while the user is sleeping.
By using a combination of sensors, SKIIN identifies whether wearers are stressed, focused or calm – allowing them to gain insights to optimise their day, increase productivity, and practice techniques to improve their mental health.
By providing an accurate ECG, tracking activity throughout the day, and monitoring hydration, the wearer is able to maximise fitness potential as well as lifestyle objectives. (GK)
