How does scientific research relate to programmable clothing, computational textiles or wearable devices? Often, lab findings may take decades to be applied to actual products. But most technologies we use today were derived from discoveries decades ago. When developing an innovative product, have you found your big ideas limited by the current state of technology? It could be battery life and form-factor, size of electronics, functionality, communications, computational capability, industry ability to scale ... you name it. The bottlenecks cannot be broken through without advancement in basic technologies, which are driven by futuristic scientific research.
Below are examples of research KtY has conducted, which can be used to reduce the size of electronic components, leading to new types of circuitry and materials. Follow the links here to read a selected list of publications that establish the fundamentals.
