Advances in textile-friendly electronics devices, smart materials, sophisticated interfaces, and intelligent software have combined to make intelligent garments increasingly practical. This paper introduces Co-eTex, a framework designed to support collaborative development of intelligent garments. It is based on a newly-invented construction platform for eTextiles and Wearable Computing, which was designed to be robust, reliable, easy to construct and to program. It also includes a hybrid graphical-textual programming tool designed for novice programmers to program intelligent behaviour for intelligent garments. We describe the use of Co-eTex in rapidly developing prototypes for a variety of designs of intelligent garments. Based on our experiences in using the Co-eTex, we believe it is a possible direction leading to the development of mass customization or adaptive customization of intelligent garments.
