Katie Linendoll presents Hexoskin during the Today Show on the first day of 2015.
"Smart clothes, wearable technology, a trend that is not going anywhere and so much in fact that it's actually the fabric in itself that is getting smarter. Check this out this is Hexoskin, there are sensors inside the fabric, you put a little device on the side here and you can actually for 14 hours calculate all of your data from Heart Rate to your Intensity it's in real time on your app. So pretty incredible technology."
Happy New Biometric Year to all!
A traditional vehicle review goes like this: Reviewer drives car, reviewer gathers thoughts, reviewer relays vehicle impressions to audience. But what if instead of explaining what it's like to drive a given car, the reviewer could simply show the audience their response to the vehicle? With advancements in wearable biometrics technology, it's now possible to replace car review adjectives with cold, hard data.
Translogic host Jonathon Buckley heads to Palm Beach Raceway in Florida to gauge his physiological reaction to driving the all-new Lexus RC F, with a little help from biometrics experts at Emotiv and Hexoskin. From his brain to his body, Jonathon's vitals are measured as he takes to the track in the latest sports coupe from Lexus.

"The sensors that have begun showing up on our wrists will eventually spread to clothing and accessories all over our bodies. We’re already seeing them in shoes, hats, and upper body garments. No doubt slacks and underwear are coming next.
One of the first movers in this space is Hexoskin, which already has a whole line of clothing for athletes and others who are exposed to the elements."
