Anura Rathnayake of the Advanced Textiles Research Group has been conducting further wash trials on our textiles with fully integrated electronics. Full electrical functionality is retained even after repeated machine wash cycles. This is achieved by encapsulating the semi-conductor chips within resin micro-pods for protection. Free fibres between micro-pods ensure that the required textile characteristics of softness and flexibility are retained.
