Washington, D.C. (January 12, 2016) -- Hexoskin and SensorUp have partnered to showcase an internet of things-based system designed to help keep first responders safer. The project was funded by the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate to demonstrate how integrating existing Internet of Things sensor technologies using a standards-based approach can support first responder missions. The technology was demonstrated at DHS S&T headquarters in Washington, DC. Hexoskin smart shirts worn by first responders collect first responders’ biometrics in near real-time (one-second delay). When a first responder in the field approaches a critical state, situation managers are alerted, and can respond to the danger immediately.View full article →

Katie Linendoll presents Hexoskin during the Today Show on the first day of 2015.
"Smart clothes, wearable technology, a trend that is not going anywhere and so much in fact that it's actually the fabric in itself that is getting smarter. Check this out this is Hexoskin, there are sensors inside the fabric, you put a little device on the side here and you can actually for 14 hours calculate all of your data from Heart Rate to your Intensity it's in real time on your app. So pretty incredible technology."
Happy New Biometric Year to all!
A traditional vehicle review goes like this: Reviewer drives car, reviewer gathers thoughts, reviewer relays vehicle impressions to audience. But what if instead of explaining what it's like to drive a given car, the reviewer could simply show the audience their response to the vehicle? With advancements in wearable biometrics technology, it's now possible to replace car review adjectives with cold, hard data.
Translogic host Jonathon Buckley heads to Palm Beach Raceway in Florida to gauge his physiological reaction to driving the all-new Lexus RC F, with a little help from biometrics experts at Emotiv and Hexoskin. From his brain to his body, Jonathon's vitals are measured as he takes to the track in the latest sports coupe from Lexus.

"The sensors that have begun showing up on our wrists will eventually spread to clothing and accessories all over our bodies. We’re already seeing them in shoes, hats, and upper body garments. No doubt slacks and underwear are coming next.
One of the first movers in this space is Hexoskin, which already has a whole line of clothing for athletes and others who are exposed to the elements."

"In August, an event was held at the Chicago Autobahn Country Club, produced by Porsche and The Atlantic’s creative marketing group Atlantic Re:think. Titled ‘The Art of the Thrill‘, it was powered by the TRAQS Enterprise Platform and digital design studio Sosolimited.
The event measured the thrill and excitement drivers experience while driving the new Porsche Macan on the race track, with biometric data provided by the Hexoskin shirt. The event and a recently published article by The Atlantic show wearable tech meeting digital art. Twenty five drivers were selected to participate, each fitted with the latest in high tech wearable sensors."

We outfitted a group of 25 innovators in design, sports, and technology with Hexoskin—a futuristic shirt that tracks heart beats, breathing rates and body movement. Then we buckled them each into the Porsche Macan and sent them speeding around a serpentine race track.
Alternately giggly, amped and anxious, the riders sent millions of data points through their shirts into a visual dashboard powered by TRAQS’s system. “You can see someone coming around a corner and their heart rate spikes or they start to breathe heavily,” said Wade Aaron, a designer at Sosolimited. “When you trace their data over the track, you end up with this really unique fingerprint of their experience on the racetrack.”
