Fashion is lighting up!

I’ve always been sceptical of light-up clothes and other similar ‘futuristic’ fashion, but New Scientist has an article on a prototype battery yarn that could address all my doubts. Now the hard work rests with the fashion designers to use this in a way that isn’t tacky and has nothing to do with Christmas.

    If they could combine this with a body computer so it could use the lit-up clothing as a giant medic alert signal, U’d really have something.

    I think I’ll stick to spinning and knitting conventional sheep and alpaca wool for now. Let me know when they do something useful with it.
