A bad patch of weather or cold winter are quite common in Poland. Canadians who often struggle with similar weather conditions have just started a crowdfunding action to get the funding for a state-of-the-art clothing.
SKIINCore is a wireless and self-heating wearable that helps you combat cold under all conditions. The product works up to eight hours. Thanks to a specialistic yarn, it can hold 18 watts of heating power. SKIINCore comes in a discreet and subtle design to improve users comfort. The set includes a long-sleeved top and a pair of leggings. Technology implemented in the cloth is programmed to adapt to the users’ temperature in the movement and the temperature outside. This way, the device collects the data to optimise next usages. SKIINCore can be used during any weather conditions and might be useful especially for fans of winter sports.
How does it work?
The wearable senses the temperature and automatically regulates the amount of warm. It has also a kind of insulation and ensures ventilation zones. The heat is provided only to the areas of the body that are the most vulnerable to cold and avoids the zones most prone to sweat.
The usage is improved by a ribbed texture from the outside and smooth on the inside. The material does not change its place and remains complete. With a USB-C you can charge your phone even during workout or while powering the wearable. What is also important, SKIINCore is safe to wash in a washing machine.
The project SKIINCore took three years of studies and work. The concept was awarded by IDTechEx and the Canadian Printable Electronics Symposium.
SKIIN is the world’s first Textile Computing platform. The company Myant, SKIIN’s parent company, helped to develop the project of the brand new kind of clothes. Myant carries out research, development, prototyping, testing, and full production of textile computing components and finished products.
