There is a New Frontier to be Explored in Textiles!
Welspun (www.welspun.com), a conglomerate that specializes in home textiles, is thrilled to announce that it has secured the “Interactive Textile Article and Augmented Reality System” patent, which protects Welspun’s new product line TILT. The patent covers a system that has textile material with a design motif and an augmented reality software application. The software application is designed to allow a user to scan the design motif on the textile material, and enter an augmented reality portal that is thematically related to the design motif.
TILT by Welspun is a new brand that focuses on seamlessly integrating technology into textiles. The first product, Spin Tales, is an interactive and innovative bed set and rug for kids aged three and up. With innovative technology, a free app designed for the duvet cover and rug allows the user to experience adventures in augmented reality and engage in interactive games. Spin Tales is the first of many smart home textile products that will be introduced under the TILT umbrella.
“There is a new frontier to be explored in textiles – one that delights, engages, animates and connects – and as a company with global reach, it is important for us to protect the skills and knowledge needed to launch this new frontier of products,” said Dipali Goenka, CEO and Joint Managing Director, Welspun India Ltd. “This patent will push forth avenues to engage users while fostering a learning environment with innovative and futuristic textiles. Welspun is excited to introduce products, that when enabled by technology, immerse the user to the point where imagination is intertwined with interactive learning experiences.”
“Spin Tales is the first line of products to be launched under the TILT umbrella and we are excited to introduce it to the public at The Toy Insider’s Holiday of Play event on September 21, 2016,” said Qaizar Hassonjee, SVP & Head, TILT by Welspun USA. “TILT is about creating immersive experiences for users with innovative and futuristic textiles that incorporate technology.”
