Popular Science has an excellent article explaining how nanoparticles hold the potential to revolutionize the textile and clothing industries. I have written about this idea before and have even mentioned how billionaire financier Wilbur Ross expects the market for nano-enhanced textiles to surge from $10 billion in 2007 to more than $120 billion in 2011--a twelve-fold increase in just the next four years.
As the Popular Science article explains, the benefits of nano-enhanced textiles go far beyond strain-resistant pants and shirts. By tailoring the use of nanoparticles, garments can also be made to repel bugs (which would be useful in my home state of Minnesota in the summer), antimicrobial underwear (which might be useful for my rather unhygenic six-year old son), as well as for biological and chemical resistant uniforms for the U.S. military.
