3D Plastic Fabric
The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) recently acquire a plastic garment, printed by a 3D printer, CNN reported.
3D printers are industrializing the manufacture industry in the 21st century by introducing a new producing material and procedures. The making of this plastic dress overturned the tradition of clothing materials. Your dress and shirt no long need to be knitted or sewed but printed.
Smart textile can adapt and learn like we humans do. In this case, “the scent called Aqua Alba has been designed to replicate aromas released from a glass of whisky, known as the nose of the liquid,” reported by BBC.
This is huge potential for the textile industry if a custom scent can be absorbed into the product. It can smell like whiskey today and probably raspberries tomorrow.
Different materials will be added into the knitting process for different purposes. In this case, it will be the smart device that can report to the ones can save your life.
This technological breakthrough, described in a recent article in the scientific journal Sensors, clears a path for a host of new developments for people suffering from chronic diseases, elderly people living alone, and even firemen and police officers.
