The company formally known as Heapsylon, makers of the Sensoria smart clothing, has closed a $5 million Series A funding, raised entirely from the large publicly traded Italian consulting company Reply SpA. As part of the deal, which values the company at $25 million, the company changed its name to that of its product: Sensoria Inc.
Company CEO Davide Vigano today showed Wearable Tech Insider the finished prototype of its about-to-ship smart socks. (The company also makes instrumented shirts and bras.) This last version of the sensor is significantly smaller and lighter than previous versions, now weighing 28 grams and attaching to the sock with series of small magnets. Sensoria expects to start shipping in late September or early October.
