Science-fiction fabrics?

Abstract:
What if an injured soldier’s uniform could automatically apply pressure to a gushing wound? How about a shirt that could detect and kill bacteria? What if you could go from work to the gym to the bar without having to fret over smelly clothes? Science fiction?

The prototypes are already in development in labs here and across the country. Mass production of products that utilize nanotechnology may be years away, but the procedure that manipulates atoms is already making smaller inroads in the clothing industry. Ali Razavi and three fellow Wilkes University professors recently received a $120,000 state grant that the university will match to produce and market a machine that coats fabric with molecules that can alter the properties of clothing fibers.
