The electronic filling in the Connected Scarf is based on wearable biosensors EmotiBit. The smart scarf picks up bio-signals from the fan's neck throughout the match and registers different emotions.
In the basic configuration, the smart scarf registers a number of physiological indicators of a person, including heart rate, body temperature, movement parameters, emotional state and stress level. With the help of this gadget, you can find out how the fan felt at different moments of the match.
A Cisco spokesman explained that the company, using this scarf, confirmed the similarity of data on the physiological and emotional state of fans who watch competitions in different parts of the world, regardless of how often they do so. They can all experience joy, nervousness, tension, excitement and other feelings at the same time, although they can be separated by thousands of kilometers.
Cisco is going into the new football season to sell a solution based on Connected Scarf to fans around the world. The company has not yet announced the cost of the gadget and how it will be possible to receive data from it, for example, through a mobile application or through the company's cloud solutions.
