If current research is an indicator, wearable electronics will go far beyond just very small electronic devices or wearable, flexible computers. Not only will these devices be embedded in textile substrates but an electronics device or system could ultimately become the fabric itself. Electronic textiles (e-textiles) will allow the design and production of a new generation of garments with distributed sensors and electronic functions. Such e-textiles will have the revolutionary ability to sense, act, store, emit, and move – think biomedical monitoring functions or new man-machine interfaces – while ideally leveraging an existing low-cost textile manufacturing infrastructure.
All these wearable and potentially textile-embedded electronic gadgets will require power; and it wouldn’t make sense to have to plug your sleek flexible sleeve display into a bulky lithium-ion battery brick. Researchers are therefore pushing the development of wearable energy storage. Especially supercapacitors with a cable-type architecture could lead to flexible energy storage devices that can remove traditional restriction and achieve a subversive technology that could open up a path for design innovation.
Researchers have now demonstrated that flexible cotton threads can be used as a platform to fabricate a cable-type supercapacitor.

“How can textile craft techniques inform new rituals to provide self-medication for the human body?

Driven by increasingly fast-paced and stressful lifestyles, research statistics show that the number of people in sub-health conditions are rapidly increasing each year. Combining textile craft with cooking techniques I have designed an edible material infusion, aiming to combine the UK love for tea with the preventive concept of traditional Chinese Medicine. Designed to meet the demands of a busy lifestyle this daily health ritual experience enables the quick and convenient adminstration of traditional chinese medicine. Ultimately aiming encourage a preventative rather than curative approach to health and wellbeing.”
