Fruit of the Nano-Loom

Abstract:
By exploiting chemistry and nanotechnology, researchers are creating a new generation of clothes that do more than look fashionable and keep the wearer warm. Already, stores are selling pants that resist stains thanks to coatings made of "nanowhiskers," and odor-eating socks that trap microbes using nanoparticles.
