More in the category of ‘sci-fi coming to life’ is a Philips technology that allows for true fiber optics – in this case, fabric fibers. The technology called Lumalive puts an array of LEDs into the fabric itself and thus allowing you to have moving graphical images presented from your clothing. I can only imagine the potential uses for such technology – jackets for use while jogging at night that warn vehicles of your location, shirts that allow you to promote the latest craze (your favorite blog maybe), and underwear that … well … perhaps that’s best left to the imagination.
