Boffins at France Telecom have designed a prototype for a flexible screen made of woven optical fibres capable of downloading and displaying graphics such as logos, texts, patterns, scanned images directly onto clothes. The breakthrough paves the way for intelligent, communicating garments, with clothes acting as a graphical communication interface, displaying visual information in real time, and offering access to services such as the Internet, video, e-commerce, and 3G mobiles.
