Fabric-ated electronics

Department: Science & Technology

It's not farfetched to envision a world in which electronic fibers are used, for example, in clothing that monitors a patient's vital signs. Such an application could become more feasible now that researchers have found a way to weave transistors and other components of electronic circuits directly into fabric. The mechanical flexibility, elasticity, and wide range of possible starting materials make organic electronic components a natural fit for making circuits for this purpose. But conventional . . .
