Self-Powered Clothing Controls Devices

Self-Powered Clothing Controls Devices
An innovative fabric technique lets wearers control their devices through their clothing while also resisting water, stains and viruses.

The waterproof, antibacterial clothing developed by the team from Purdue University is based on omniphobic triboelectric nanogenerators (RF-TENGs) technology, in which embroidery and fluorinated molecules are used to embed electronic components in clothing. The technique does not require expensive or complex equipment, and can be applied to any existing fabric—resulting in a comfortable, wearable remote control that can be washed multiple times without degradation.
