Life in 2030 – Smart Fibers


My latest feature for IEEE Spectrum Radio is about the future of textiles – clothes that can keep you healthy, that charge your cell phone, and that never get dirty; fabrics that can change color, can keep you warm or cool depending on the weather, and can deliver medicines through your skin throughout the day. This is some seriously fascinating stuff. You can hear the full one-hour documentary about Life in 2030 on PRX, or just my piece below. Plus there’s this fancy landing page on the IEEE website.
