In this episode of The IoClothes Podcast, we speak with Colin Touhey, CEO of pvilion. Energy independence isn’t just a geo-political challenge. We feel the pain with each and every device that “cuts the cord” from the wall. It’s inevitable our smart phones will be at 5% battery right when need to use the GPS or make an important call. Go figure. What if we didn’t have to worry about that? What if our devices became energy independent by harvesting the energy around us? pvilion is offer solutions that do just that through solar panel integrated into textiles.
This show we talk to him about why they chosen to use textiles as a base material for their solar panels, what they’ve learn from collaborations with companies like Tommy Hilfiger and the importance of business model evolution when thinking about incorporating technology into well-established industries.
