Reality Check

  • Claim:

    Warm You Up In Just 20 Seconds

  • Reality:

    A general claim, but the scarf lives up to it. Testing the prototype, (see picture above) allowed us to experience the soft high quality wool working in tandem with a clever heating element sewn directly into the fabric itself.

  • Claim:

    Ultra Fast and Safe Heating

  • Reality:

    The very lightweight lithium battery works quickly to heat the core of the scarf. In testing, there was never a hint of evidence of being zapped or being unsafe.

Something To Think About

It is crucial to place the central core of the scarf closest to the neck as possible for highest efficiency.

  • Claim:

    Cozy and Stylish

  • Reality:

    The Comfort Touch scarf is cozy and stylish depending on the end user. The sub-title of the claim is wire-free. In our prototype we did have wires running to the sewn in heating element, although the final product will have the wires hidden and sewn into the scarf as well. Also, to recharge there will be wires involved in the process.

  • Claim:

    Invisible Technology

  • Reality:

    Invisible, in the purest definition, is not being able to see anything at all. Here, there are some minor visible elements to the heating elements of the scarf. However, when wearing and using, the battery is small enough and the tech inside of the scarf is so minimal that it truly can be claimed as invisible.

Bottom Line

Comfort Touch is complex tech incorporated into the simplicity of a high quality wool scarf. Clever design uses ingenuity to create a near invisible heating element within the scarf itself while preserving the soft flexibility of the wool. In testing over a 45 minute period, temperatures were recorded to have a 30°+ increase powered by the very low profile battery. In practical use testing, the Comfort Touch Scarf was easy to use, warming, and comfortable. The Comfort Touch is a product created by a sharp founder & CEO by the name of Diana Yiu. InLab Design seems primed to make additional products in the future with the progression of the tech integrated into the Comfort Touch.
