Wearing a Chain Mail Computer?

Posted on

I’ve been sitting on this bit of textile news for a while, primarily because I was waiting to see if more uses for this fabric might be released. I know the military is looking at using this technology.

As for the modern family, well, this just won’t wash up well, but it might help in tracking a person lost in the woods or detect a small child’s skinned knee at the playground. I’m certainly hoping that detection of a bullet wound will not be the main use for adding it to our stashes. But then, reality bites.

And then there is the consideration of wearing an electromagnetic field on one’s body.

Please read more about this chain mail fabric here. I don’t feel qualified to paraphrase the article.

New Smart Fabric Detects Vital Signs, Bullet Wounds, Motion, Strain, Pressure, and Produce(s) Power


About Mary Beth

I am fascinated by changing patterns and colored threads. I sew garments and am teaching myself to machine knit. Since selling the building that housed my workrooms, The Stitchery, I'm searching for a place to set up the knitting machines again. There must be room here somewhere!
