FABRICS: Nano Technology

FABRICS: Nano Technology

Charlie Bradley Ross Thursday, 1 March 2018

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.
