Fabric Heater / product design

Fabric Heater
Fabric Heater

“Fabric Heater” is a tablecloth that combines “electrothermal fabric” and “large area pressure sensing material”.
We always use electromagnetic oven heating food in hot pot restaurant. In order to set electromagnetic oven, the owner has to drill hole on table. It’s very inconvenient in eating and cleaning to customer and owner.
So we use “electrothermal fabric” to heat hot pot and use “large area pressure sensing material” to control temperature. Patterns on the fabric are heating area, avoiding people are scalded by it. You can operate “Fabric Heater” easily and clean it conveniently.
