Prototyper of the Week
XO Optimizes Electronic and Textile Interfaces
Every week, we recognize the Highway1 team that was most active in the lab with the prestigious Prototyper of the Week award.
This week’s winner is XO. Here to tell the team’s story in their own words is Benjamin Males, CEO.
“We believe we can improve the power efficiency of the XO Tag by optimizing the interface between the LED controller and the textile. In order to test this theory, we built a rig which isolates just the variables that we need to evaluate. Using this rig, we tested different combinations of LEDs, textiles, and the interface connecting them. We gleaned very positive results, which will help define the focus of our R&D going forward.”
