E-Textiles 2017-2027: Technologies, Markets, Players

IDTechEx Report: Mr James Hayward
17 Feb

Long-lasting flow battery could run for more than a decade

Researchers have developed a new flow battery that stores energy in organic molecules dissolved in neutral pH water. This new chemistry allows for a non-toxic, non-corrosive battery with an exceptionally long lifetime and offers the potential to significantly decrease the costs of production.

New level of control over the structure of 3D-printed materials

Researchers have developed a new method to 3D print materials with independently tunable macro-and microscale porosity using a ceramic foam ink.

Smart city fixtures

The benches contain an embedded charging station powered by a mini solar panel, with two USB ports for plugging in mobile devices. They also connect to wireless networks.

Metallic hydrogen realised

Nearly a century after it was theorized, Harvard scientists report they have succeeded in creating the rarest material on the planet, which could eventually develop into one of its most valuable.

Metabolic energy savings from wearable gait-improving robot

By removing the actuation, electronics and battery units, leaving only the exosuit's light wearable textiles and pulling cables, the researchers were able to calculate the impact on the wearers' joints.

Soft robot helps the heart beat

Researchers have developed a customizable soft robot that fits around a heart and helps it beat, potentially opening new treatment options for people suffering from heart failure.

Mimicking biological movements with soft robots

Designing a soft robot to move organically — to bend like a finger or twist like a wrist — has always been a process of trial and error.

Taking a leap in bioinspired robotics

n the not so distant future, first responders to a disaster zone may include four-legged, dog-like robots that can bound through a fire or pick their way through a minefield, rising up on their hind legs to turn a hot door handle or punch through a wall.

A tiny squeeze gives a big boost in performance

A nanosize squeeze can significantly boost the performance of platinum catalysts that help generate energy in fuel cells, according to a new study.
25 Nov

A new standard in robotics

Known as the Yale-CMU-Berkeley (YCB) Object and Model Set, the intent is to provide universal benchmarks for labs specializing in robotic manipulation and prosthetics around the world.

3D-printed organ-on-a-chip with integrated sensing

Built by a fully automated, digital manufacturing procedure, the 3D-printed heart-on-a-chip can be quickly fabricated with customizable size, shape and other physical properties, while allowing researchers to easily collect reliable data for extended times in culture.
21 Oct

Stretchy optical fibers for implanting in the body

Researchers have developed a biocompatible and highly stretchable optical fiber made from hydrogel — an elastic, rubbery material composed mostly of water. The fiber, which is as bendable as a rope of licorice, may one day be implanted in the body to deliver therapeutic pulses of light or light up at the first sign of disease.
14 Oct

New kind of supercapacitor made without carbon

Researchers have for the first time developed a supercapacitor that uses no conductive carbon at all, and that could potentially produce more power than existing versions of this technology.
11 Oct

Robotic surgical system with sense of touch

A world-first innovation will give surgeons the sense of touch while they drive a robot to conduct keyhole surgery via a computer.
20 Sep

World's first ciliary stroke motion microrobots

A research team has developed microrobots with high propulsion efficiency in highly-viscous fluid environments, applying propulsion techniques that mimic the ciliary stroke motion of paramecia.
12 Sep

Drug-dispensing contact lens

A contact lens designed to deliver medication gradually to the eye could improve outcomes for patients with conditions requiring treatment with eye drops, which are often imprecise and difficult to self-administer.

Artificial muscle for soft robotics: low voltage, high hopes

Researchers at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) have developed a dielectric elastomer with a broad range of motion that requires relatively low voltage and no rigid components.
