Development of Smart Interactive Functional Clothing
This project is proposed to develop smart functional clothing, which are responsive or adaptive to the kinetics and physiological changes of human body and to the changes of environmental conditions. The project is focused on the development of clothing for extreme (i.e. demanding) conditions, namely, summer wear, sportswear and cold protective clothing, through the innovative application of clothing physiology, biomimetics, nanotechnology and advanced apparel evaluation technology. The project will enhance the competitiveness of Hong Kong textile and clothing industry through the creation of new product lines as well as value addition to existing apparel products.
