NEW YORK (AFP) – This could give a whole new meaning to the phrase power dressing. Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have created a cloth that can hear and emit noise. The team, led by MIT professor Yoel Fink, has reached "a new milestone on the path to functional fibers: fibers that can detect and produce sound," MIT said in a statement. The development, described in the August issue of Nature Materials, transforms the usual passive nature of textiles into a virtually all-singing, all-dancing version.

Great find!

Of course, it's very Orwellian, isn't it? But I love the brainpower at MIT.

That is pretty cool, something like that would be nice for law enforcement stings, no more wire to search for, as long as the cloth can shut up.

great find
