Form and Function: New Applications for Clothing

Abstract:
It is an age old question in the clothing industry: form or function. In the near future the question is going to become increasing irrelevant as clothing begins to perform a variety of functions—at the same time. MIT's Technology Review has a fascinating article entitled "A New Nanogenerator" which outlines how new advances in the field of nanotechnology might soon enable wireless biosensors to be embedded directly into clothing. Among the many things this will allow is that users—as well as their doctors—will be able to monitor from afar everything from their heart rate to their blood pressure.
