Tech revolution in Textile Industry

By shiwaneeg |Email | Apr 12, 2018 | 8313 Views

In the age of tech revolution, we can experience innovations across every industry.  We are here to talk about a jacket that uses machine learning to keep perfectly toasty and warm while also making customers look stylish on-the-go. We all are quite aware about heated jackets. But those that are currently available depend upon the wearer to activate and adjust them.

                  

A Boston-based clothing company, Ministry of Supply is soon coming up with a heated jacket, Mercury. It is an IoT enabled, heated jacket that is controlled by an app, syncs with Alexa, and customizes its temperature using machine learning. Mercury is currently in its prototype-testing phase, and is promised to available in November, 2018.

The jacket uses an accelerometer along with temperature sensors to alter the heat it pumps out according to the temperature around and the user's activity levels. This jacket is quite able to adjust the frigid outdoor temperatures to sweaty interior places. Also, the company will be able to measure how often customers wear the jacket, the length of their commutes, and even their temperature preferences. The company is using it to explore what happens when the clothing becomes part of the IoT and, therefore, source of data.

This tech innovation will provide a competitive edge to the company in the overall industry.
