Integrating Textiles & Electronics

Integrating Textiles and Electronics 1 Replies

 

The basis of e-textiles is simple. It's the physical integration of textiles and electronics. The concept is far more straightforward than the practice. To realize the promise of new experiences that smart and e-textiles can offer, we're going to have to master the science/art of integration between the different mediums.

 

What are the most significant challenges in integrating textiles and electronics? What are the most promising methods? Knitting? Lamination? Stitching? Printing? Embroidery? Who's leading with scalable and robust processes?
