The invention will officially be presented in January.
The database of the World Intellectual Property Organization has a new patent from Samsung. It describes the algorithm by which the company’s intellectual clothing is supplied with energy to activate various functions. New technological clothing from Samsung will be equipped with an “energy harvester” that allows to generate energy with the help of the movements of the user’s hands and the friction of the clothes themselves. The battery will be in the lower back, but there is no information about its volume yet. Judging by the patent application in which the sweater is indicated, it can be assumed that the battery will have a low power.
Samsung first talked about the technology of The HumanFit in 2015. According to the company’s representatives, the line of “smart” clothing is later expanded to business suits and accessories. Experts suggest that the development will be shown at CES 2018, which will be held in Las Vegas in January.
