  • What I find fascinating about textiles,

  • is that the structure of textiles is the same as the structure of touch screens

  • which we use in everyday mobile devices and tablets.

  • That means, that if you just replace some of the threads in textiles with conductive threads,

  • you should be able to weave a textile which can recognize a variety of simple touch gestures.

  • Just like any normal touch panel you have in a mobile phone.

  • So if you can hide or weave interactivity and input devices into the materials,

  • that will be the first step to making computers and computing invisibly integrated

  • into objects, materials, and clothing.

  • So this is exciting to me.

  • The challenge of creating Jacquard yarn,

  • was to create yarn that is highly conductive, and at the same time scalable.

  • Which means it could be used in industrial weaving machines everywhere in the world.

  • For textile designers, or fashion designers, or furniture designers,

  • it is interesting because it is something you are very familiar with, it's just textile.

  • We made the yarn very thin and it feels so natural, so it looks like just normal yarn.

  • The only thing that is different, is that it is conductive.

  • We worked with textile designers from all over the world

  • and it's really interesting to see what kind of possibilities that we can have.

  • It could be visiblevery obviously, like it is here.

  • It also can be totally invisible.

  • So we are creating possibilities by combining different ways of weaving techniques.

  • And that is totally up to the designers to choose and it is up to their creativity.

  • We are trying to shrink down all of the components down to the size of a button.

  • And ultimately this will be something that is so small we can embed into the manufacturing process.

  • So the users won't even see it or feel it inside the garment.

  • The idea that Jacquard is an interface that is blended into the clothing that we wear

  • that has an implication in the way that you would use services, products, applications,

  • and anything that we do through our devices.

  • It is somehow getting the technology out of the way

  • and making interactions more natural and more seamless.

  • In terms of what the technology can do, it's really up to the user and to the designers

  • and we expect that users can reconfigure it as much as they want to.

  • Software development and fashion design

  • often don't exist in the same place.

  • So we're hoping to make it very simple for each of those parties

  • to collaborate and we're hoping to provide both software and hardware knowledge and components

  • to make those collaborations very easy.

  • We like to think that we have these iconic products that haven't changed much,

  • but the world is changing so I think Jacquard presents a great opportunity

  • for a brand, for design to open a door to the future.

  • In tailoring we use methods that have been used and not changed for 200 years

  • so when something new comes along, it's really exciting.

  • What's amazing about the project is that I don't have to have any knowledge about the electronics and how it works.

  • So let's see what we can create with it.

  • Jacquard is a blank canvas, for designers and for developers.

  • We are just at the beginning.

  • And we are really excited to see what people are going to do with it.
