In recent years an increasingly smart gadgets whose primary purpose is to simplify work with existing devices or adding new features. And not all of these devices entirely relate to the world of electronics. There are already plenty of prototypes of various smart clothing, and its production does not take major producers, distributing it is unlikely to get. And it seems that the first steps in this direction makes the Korean giant Samsung, a special patented smart sweater.
Information on the patent of Koreans appeared on the website of the International patent office. Innovation from Samsung is not just warm in the cold, but also become a portable charger which in all senses is always at hand. Unlike most similar products, sweater, Samsung will be recharged from the heat and movement of the carrier, while most existing samples are recharged from the outlet in the “traditional” method (and stuck in the socket sweater, you will agree, looks a little weird).
On the surface of smart clothes (or rather, in the back) there is a special sensor that reads information about the movement of the user. This place is the transfer and transformation of energy suitable for charging devices. Information about the energy capacity at the moment no, but in combination with wireless charging such clothing just opens a huge scope for creativity. Just imagine: you put the smartphone in the pocket, and while he’s there, the battery is replenished!
