Dumb now but about to get smarter!


Look smart

In a world where our domestic appliances seem to be getting cleverer and cleverer - why do our clothes and textiles seem so dumb?

Shop Talk looks at the world of smart fabrics and wearable technology. And presenter Heather Payton discovers it’s closer to reality than you might think.

Sharon Baurley
Research Fellow, Central St Martin’s Innovation Centre.

Chad Ellis
Vice President of Marketing, XELIBRI

Ghislaine Boddington
Creative Director, Future Physical.

Jim Oliver
