The Switch Mat Platform based on patented technology converts any fabric or textile backing onto a smart platform with detection sensors that is flexible, highly portable and washable. The user can incorporate a keypad directly towards sports fabrics, car interior upholsteries or stand-alone textile keyboards. They can be connected to laptops, tablets and other handheld devices.
The Switch Mat Dev Kit is an innovative product based on a patent technology which uses electrically conductive inks printed onto textile backings. The product consists of an area of fabric with resistive switches distributed across its surface. The number, size and distribution of switches are completely flexible. That allows any type of keyboard or control pad to be defined.
The fabric allows the keyboard to function while retaining its textile properties: flexibility, washable, elasticity, etc.
