The Style Issue: Fashion Forces

Abstract:
Today, the majority of funding, whether through academic institutes or private businesses, going into US apparel, textile technologies, and wearable computing is coming from the US defense industry. After the Bush administration increased defense spending in 2004, the apparel industry had its first net job gain since 1990. In addition, the major technological advances in apparel are coming from military research. The most notable example would be the Future Force Warrior. The Future Force Warrior is one of the mostly heavily funded fabric-tech programs in the US. It employs nanotechnology and artificially powered exoskeletons to create an autonomously operative infantryman.
