FABRICS: Nano Technology
Digital textile printing has been around for decades to print simple colourants on textiles, but Felice Torrisi, a University Lecturer in Graphene Technology and a Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge, has been working on a project and has actually managed to successfully demonstrate for the first time that it is possible to print the entire electronic integrated circuit onto a textile. In lamens terms, he can print a computer onto a fabric that stretches and is washable! We are so honoured to be one of the first to interview Felice about his incredible technology - we can't wait for you to dive in!
In this interview, Felice shares:
- What a nanomaterial and graphene is.
- How ethical graphene and other nanomaterials are.
- How the technology works.
- What the inks are made of and if they are environmentally friendly.
- The prototypes they've made.
- The potential uses for nanotechnology.
- The future of the project.
