Cotton – Fabric of our lights

The advancement of electronics in textiles field has reached a new level. Earlier electronics were embedded in the textiles,which provides a wide variety of applications such as monitor homes for noxious chemicals, help firefighters maneuver in smoky buildings, help stroke victims recover their function and much more. With increase in the applications e-textiles become much bulkier, with full of wires  and sensors,thus not suitable for mass production. Hence scientists moved a step forward  and were  successful in  making the fabric itself as electronic  device.

The technological world of the 21st century owes a tremendous amount to advances in electrical engineering, specifically, the ability to finely control the flow of electrical charges using increasingly small and complicated circuits. And while those electrical advances continue to race ahead, researchers at the University of Pennsylvania are pushing circuitry forward in a different way, by replacing electricity with light.
