First wearable electronic cloth now available

Tue, May 12, 2015, 02:41 PM
London, May 12L We are a step closer to wearable computers and devices as scientists have pioneered a new technique to embed transparent, flexible graphene electrodes into clothing fibres.

The discovery could revolutionise the creation of wearable electronic devices, such as clothing containing computers, phones and MP3 players, which are lightweight, durable and easily transportable, the scientists said.

"This is a pivotal point in the future of wearable electronic devices. This is the first example of a textile electrode being truly embedded in a yarn," said study co-author professor Monica Craciun from the University of Exeter.

"The possibilities for its use are endless, including textile GPS systems, to biomedical monitoring, personal security or even communication tools for those who are sensory-impaired," she added.

At just one atom thick, graphene is the thinnest substance capable of conducting electricity. It is very flexible and is one of the strongest known materials.
