Who never dreamt of a piece of clothing that would be smart enough to adjust itself to your body’s needs? Well maybe a lot of people, but it has long been a dream for the nerdy me :-) and, well it seems it’s close to become a reality! Omius, a California-based startup just unveiled a sports jacket concept using robotics to automatically adapt its thermal protection to the wearer’s environmental conditions.
What if the climax of smart clothing was self-healing clothing, which aims at protecting and regenerating not only the clothes, but also the wearer? Well, this technology was inspired by Mother Nature’s own tricks: welcome to the Biomimicry era, where Nature is the richest inspiration source for groundbreaking innovations that could be applied to Fashion.
