French company Cityzen Sciences won the CES 2014 Inclusive Innovation in Everyday Health award for the development of a smart-sensing fabric woven with integral micro-sensors that read body heat, respiration rate, heart rate, and motion through location via GPS.

 

The fabric combines sensors, fabric, distributed computation, and small battery-powered transmitter into a unit that links in real time to a smartphone.

 

Apparently, they’re also working on a recharging system for the fabric that will receive most of its energy when the clothing is washed. Until it’s implemented, you’ll have to set the spin cycle to 24 hours*
