We have all been in a situation where our phone has run out of battery but we  have nowhere to charge it. What if the clothes you wear can help you? This variant isn't as outlandish as you might think, thanks to work by researchers at Nottingham Trent University.

Dr Theodore Hughes-Riley, Associate Professor of Electronic Textiles at  Nottingham School of Art and Design, led the research that led to the development of  innovative electronic textiles containing 1,200 photovoltaic cells. The combined cells  are capable of harnessing 400 milliwatts (mW) of electrical energy from the sun. This is enough to charge a regular cellphone or smartwatch. 

Breathable and flexible e-textile can be incorporated into clothing and accessories so you never run out of energy. The e-textile behaves  like any other piece of fabric and can be washed at 40°C (104°F). This is made possible by the waterproof polymer resin that encapsulates the 5mm x 1.5mm photovoltaic cells. 

“This prototype offers an interesting glimpse of the destiny capability for e-textiles,” shared Dr. Hughes-Riley. “Until now only a few humans could have taken into consideration that their garb or textiles merchandise can be used for producing electricity.” He continues, “Electronic textiles truely have the capability to extrade humans’s dating with technology, as this prototype indicates how we may want to dispose of charging many gadgets on the wall. This is an interesting improvement which builds on preceding technology we've made and illustrates how it could be scaled as much as generate greater power.”

The early e-fabric is pushing the bounds of what is possible. Standing at the vanguard of sustainability, it's far reshaping the manner we consider technology.
