Yes, TJ, you're right. I was actually thinking of this article I just wrote when I was researching the yarn one: http://www.designnews.com/author.asp?section_id=1386&doc_id=265384

Actually, a slideshow of the technologies might be a good idea, too, as well as a feature that highlights all of the various technologies, as you suggest.

Yes, Rob, we old folks may not want to experiment with something that wouldn't be so comfortable, but this could really take off with the younger kids, who are more likely to adopt the latest and coolest fashion and technology crazes, no matter what the comfort level.

Summary of the state of the art

Elizabeth, this is another step in the combining of power with clothing.  DN published quite a number of articles of a similar nature.  I respectfully suggest an article collecting the titles (with links) to all the stories in the past 12-18 months might prove interesting to readers?

This is fun

Thanks, Elizabeth, this is fun and a wonderful application of energy harvesting. Although I don't think I'd want to wear it because of artificial fabrics feel weird.

Clothing for a new generation

Pretty fantastic stuff, Elizabeth. I wonder if you can put it in the dryer or the washer. I wonder what it feels like on the skin. Right off the bat, I predict it will be adopted by those in their late teens and early twenties and shuned by those older than 40.
