The increasing number of objects within homes connected to the Cloud is not going to recede. Our growing acceptance of automated appliances and items connected in wireless sensor networks (WSN) is gradually making our homes smart. This occurrence is a reflection of the technological advancement of societies around the world. We predict that the future applications of WSN will incorporate smart textiles. These will appear in smart homes, as well as in commercial spaces, in automobile vehicles, in personal or business-owned clothing, and even toys. As the electronics become available to industry, smart textiles could be embedded with electronics capable of receiving and transmitting data packets. The implications are that soft furnishings or any surfaces with a textile have the potential capability of connecting to the Cloud. Considering future applications of smart textiles, whether for personal or commercial usage, we can predict data contents that would be stored in a WSN and discuss how to ensure safety and network stability.
