[MEMS Exhibition 2011] BEANS demonstrate Nanotech fiber clothes
BEANS Research Institute is the organization to follow in Japan for cutting edge technology! At MEMS Japan 2011, BEANS introduces many interesting tech all related to Nanotechnology usage in our everyday fabrics.
Among the very cool project introduces by BEANS at MEMS 2011, we stumble upon two very nice integration of Nanotech in clothes fabric like this keyboard (picture above) embedded in your average tissue and capable to take whatever shape and size, allowing to virtually build any kind of keyboard or keypad on pretty much everything and everywhere.
Or like this very interesting approaches to embedded solar cells that can be implemented directly to tissues/fabric or be “glued” upon any fabric.
The idea here is to generate enough energy to either power devices (GPS, Phone…) or help you to get smarter clothes capable to cool you down or warm you up when needed.
