For smart apparel and smart soft goods, an electronic housing is often a jacket, a piece of furniture, or a car interior. This presentation will explain approaches for good integration of electronics into soft goods products with an emphasis on apparel. We'll cover sourcing raw materials for circuitry development, choosing technical fabrics for exteriors, and creating garment forms that that make for a seamless integration between industries.
