A smart jacket developed by SINTEF and NTNU as a collaborative effort between the EU R&D projects SOCIETIES and MIRROR is making headlines.The smart jacket is built to assist rescue workers in the event of a crisis such as a fire, an earthquake or similar.
NTNU students in collaboration with SINTEF ICT Health Informatics Group prototype smartwear that can talk to Facebook. The smartwear can provide collaboration support for those who cannot use touch-screen smartphones, for instance rescuers, firefighters or people with reduced physical abilities. The jacket can wirelessly read your Facebook updates, vibrate the skin of your neck, in this way getting your attention to check the LCD screen attached to your sleeve.
