Tyme - Arnar Larusson, Co-founder

In this episode, I spend time with Arnar Larusson, Co-founder at Tyme, a Boston-based startup that integrates sensors into clothing to measure various biometrics signals, including breathing and movement.

Our conversation starts with his upbringing in Iceland and early signs of entrepreneurs, later moving into how prosthetics stay on the body and discussing his efforts at Harvard to create a fabric that decreases the amount of energy you need to walk.

Next, we discuss the benefits and drawbacks of wearable tech currently on the market and how he is attempting to merge the worlds of electronics and fabrics manufacturing to build a world in which sensors you can't see or feel are measuring your health in realtime.

Enjoy the conversation with Arnar from TymeWear!
