What if you heart rate was visible for everyone to see while you speak to them? What if a physician prescribed a t-shirt to their patients as a part of their care? Dr. Jesse Jur is creating the future of clothing and personalized health by embedding incredible thin, flexible sensors into every day clothing to help us get to know ourselves more than ever before. Dr. Jess Jur is an Assistant Professor of Textile Engineering, Chemistry & Science at NC State University's College of Textiles. He has spent his career researching the interfaces of technologies from semiconductor device development to designs for textile electronics. His research at NC State focuses on engineering the design of electronics into textiles including wearable garments that harvest power from the body and monitor your environmental and physiological state. Through funding from federal agencies (like the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health and the Department of Defense), industry and NC State, Dr. Jur leads a unique multi-disciplinary team of graduate and undergraduate students. Along the way to answering the question 'why?', he finds fun ways to make people say 'wow!'. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
