True-meaning wearable displays:  Self powered, washable and wearable

True-meaning wearable displays: Self powered, washable and wearable

When we think about clothes, they are usually formed with textiles and have to be both wearable and washable for daily use; however, smart clothing has had a problem with its power sources and moisture permeability, which causes the devices to malfunction. This problem has now been overcome by a research team, who developed a textile-based wearable display module technology that is washable and does not require an external power source.
