The simple fact that a piece of fabric can work as a computer is amazing and with the advancement of technologies, smart clothing will become a regular outfit to wear. Although we think about electronics as rigid screens and hard components, in the near future, these will be able to flex and bend, allowing for a perfect integration with the world of textiles and soft materials.
Since 80% of a fabric performance comes from the yarns, electronics will be spun with fibers and interwoven with yarns to achieve invisible and unobtrusive integration.
