Abstract

This chapter focuses on a select group of smart materials that are commonly embedded in wearables or are excellent prototyping tools for product and wearable design. I have already mentioned conductive materials, which fall under this category, but I explain in greater detail the properties of conductive thread that make it ideal for certain applications and less ideal for others.
