Before I worked in the electronics industry I was a fabric designer at a warp knitting factory. There I saw that Nylon or Polyester fabrics of 40 Denier or bigger have spaces between the fibers that are more than 50% of the fabric surface, so the spaces available for carbon is as much as the size of the fabric itself. Very promising development!

Very cool! With this, you could use the garment to power a pacemaker, or even to recharge the battery for one! And the possibilities go on and on.....

Last week we heard that silicon circuits can be made flexible if the material is thin enough and rippled on a prestretched elastic substrate. With this development for woven materials, soon we won't even know when we're looking at electronic circuits. Illuminated clothing to guide us in the dark? Bring on the innovation.

Wow! Things those were thought to be part of only the science fiction might going to happen in real world. During one of our training classes on creative thinking, the topic was about how one could escape the laundry. Some body came out with an idea of inventing an electronic dress, which could change colour and look...so that you have only a couple of dresses, and that's it. Looks possible?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
