Building Better Boxers: Nanotechnology for Smart Underwear

Abstract:
As the technology to support wearable electronics advances, researchers are investigating new ways of making our clothing more "intelligent" from smart shirts for theater ushers to the development of clothing that can respond to the wearer's emotive state. So would it surprise you to learn that your humble underpants could one day save your life? A new study has shown that printed sensors on the elastic band of your underpants could monitor biomarkers in your sweat and tears, make autonomous diagnoses and even administer life-saving drugs.
