LOOMIA TILE – a hardware device that transforms clothes

The LOOMIA TILE is a hardware device that transforms clothes into data-collecting and identity tools. It works in conjunction with the LOOMIA Electronic Layer (LEL), a soft flexible circuit embedded into textiles with the ability to sense changes in its environment, such as heat and touch. Users can transfer their data to a desktop application that allows them to manage and sell their data to market researchers. The app is completely serverless and leverages the blockchain for security and data integrity. In a world where personal data has become a precious commodity sold behind closed doors by large corporations, the LOOMIA TILE gives individuals the right to own their personal data, along with the freedom to choose how to share or sell it. In addition, the LOOMIA TILE’s unique ability to associate an individual’s physical identity, contained in their biometrics and habits, to their digital identity, contained in their online profiles and activities, presents an interesting starting point for a wide range of third party integrations. It makes it possible to build applications on LOOMIA technology to verify identity and facilitate secure payments passively and seamlessly, with no manual interaction or interface.

LOOMIA’s solution

LOOMIA’s solution is a system with three levels: the LOOMIA Electronic Layer, the LOOMIA TILE, and the Tile Platform, which supports the LOOMIA Data Exchange.

• The LOOMIA Electronic Layer (LEL) is soft, flexible circuitry integrated into garments that perform heating, lighting, sensing functions and gathers data about the user. The LEL is LOOMIA’s current product offering and their current patent pending innovation.
• The LOOMIA TILE is a hardware device that acts as a user’s “keychain” for multiple items containing LELs. It stores the data gathered by the LEL until it is synced into the Tile Platform.
• The Tile Platform is a peer-to-peer (P2P) app which stores the data collected on the LOOMIA TILE, integrates it through a blockchain protocol to verify users’ identities and date integrity, and gives users the ability to sell their personal data to brands and/or third parties.
• The LOOMIA Data Exchange is an online marketplace through which data producers and consumers exchange data. Individuals, students and researchers can be both producers and consumers. In addition LOOMIA expects brands and other organizations using the exchange as data consumers.

The Blockchain

The blockchain provides the constant backbone to ensure data authenticity, so that individual nodes can join and leave the network with no impact on the network’s integrity and operations. The blockchain ensures that zone files are correct by matching the hash for the file stored on the blockchain with the hash retrieved from distributed storage. This allows users to connect and get correct routing information for communicating with the rest of the network. (The routing algorithm LOOMIA uses is leveraging Blockstack and Kadmelia routing.)

• A directory of every registered LOOMIA product. This directory of SKUs is updated every time new LOOMIA-enabled products are manufactured. When a new product is authenticated by the LOOMIA app, it checks this registry to ensure that it is an authentic LOOMIA-enabled product.
• Aggregated user data, which is periodically hashed and written to the blockchain, creating a history that is verified in time. The length of this time series of hashes impacts a user’s identity score. This will act as a cryptographic secure tagging of IDs.
• Payment rails, which enable the user to transfer tokens to other users inside of LOOMIA and to other integrated distributed storage platforms such as Storj, Sia, or Filecoin.
