Electric textile @ IFA 2006
Even at the worlds biggest consumer electronics fair in September in Berlin we will see a Wearable Fashion show named "eFashion" (I guess it will be part of the Science show. However, till now they have no specific information yet.) I just read a press release from TITA Greiz, a German research lab about their new textile.
The textile is called Elitex¬®. TITA Greiz will present lightning textiles, communication Gloves or textile remote controls. And because of the last entries – they have textile transponder for better logistics too.
The basic is a conductive fabric that made the communication glove with integrated Bluetooth possible.
