The Cardioleaf electronic module snaps onto the shirt with 4 standard snaps. Simply turn off the device, un-snap the unit and throw the shirt in the wash. My FIT shirt shown in the video survived 3 washings.
It's not a product.... YET. Very cool, and I can see tons of market potential for this. Say the technology was integrated into Nike or Addidas sportswear... they could easily market this as a must have for athletes to track and monitor their own fitness, etc.
The only question is... how do you wash it without killing the sensors??

Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
