From the outside, the Nadi tights don’t appear particularly high-tech. There are no wires or gadgets protruding from the fabric. But woven between the nylon layers are tiny electronics meant to sit on a wearer’s hips, knees, and ankles. These electronics communicate with one another to determine where the user’s body parts are in relation to one another. The technology creates a wireless network for the body, where embedded motion sensors know exactly which position wearers are in. Announced at CES, the Nadi tights will be available for pre-sale in May, can survive up to 25 washes. As for charging them, the team hopes to create a charging basket wearers can toss the tights into post-workout.
