A smart t-shirt

Graphene (A carbon modification: one atom thick) has found its application in light industry. The structure of graphene, ‘installed’ into the fabric fibres, helped to create T-shirts and shirts that do not get dirty and do not wear out for up to 200 years. Graphene textiles can be given different, sometimes even opposite properties: for example, it can be waterproof and used as the fabric for diving equipment, or vice versa, be moisture wicking, which is essential for sportswear destined for high quantities of moisture. ‘Smart’ textile does not lose its form and has the properties of shape and temperature memory, releasing additional layers of insulation as the temperature decreases, and compressing them, when it gets hot.

henry I do not think humans would live up to 200 years by that time so the shirt should have to last so long 06 Feb 2019
Bella Torch long lasting cloths would be a problem because we would have to find a way to break it down or re-cycle it 06 Feb 2019
Tristan Jobin For the big companies to make constant / reliable profit, those clothes, in the near future, would cost a lot of big bills. But the cloth is totally possible to make and could be sold to interested people. 06 Feb 2019
DJ DRAGON This would be a great benefit to the clothing industry. However, graphene isn't the cheapest substance around the block. Recycling isn't a problem for graphene as it is eco-friendly and easily recyclable. Good prediction. 06 Feb 2019
