South Korean researchers develop graphene-based sensory clothing

South Korean researchers have developed a new type of clothing that uses graphene to sense and communicate information. The e-textiles, created by a team from the Korea Institute of Machinery and Materials (KIMM) and the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Engineering (KAIST), can exchange information through various interfaces, including sight and sound.

The key to the innovation is laser direct patterning technology, which creates graphene on fabrics without harmful chemicals or limitations of traditional methods. This allows for highly conductive and customizable e-textiles that can be mass produced.

These smart clothes have the potential to be used in a variety of applications, including industrial and military clothing for health monitoring, and personalized healthcare garments.

This technology has been developed by analyzing the structures of generic fabrics and realizing them as graphene-based materials that have advanced features of optimal e-textiles
