Hello, i was at a convention this weekend and a speaker mentioned a product like electroluminescent wire only it was a thread. It could be woven into fabric or used to sew fabric together. It can then be controlled by a battery source and light up. I guess this a new technology but it sounds interesting. Has anyone come across this?
It's often the way though. A company gives details of an exciting new product under development, so that they can get more investment in it, only for the transition from prototype to full production, to run into problems. I once worked in a company that was working on a material to enhance the light output from LCDs. The film was worked a treat but the starting materials were carcinogenic, barely soluble in most organic solvents and difficult to test.
