Army-Supported MIT Research Explores How Clothing Fibers Can Transmit Data; James Burgess Quoted

Data-Capable Fibers

The U.S. Army has helped the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) produce a fiber that could allow for data transmission when sewed into soldier uniforms. ISN researchers tested the fiber's memory capacity by storing in it a 767-kilobit video file and a 0.48-megabyte audio file. The research also found that the fiber can be washed at least 10 times.
