The Advanced Textiles Research Group (ATRG) has produced a demonstrator composite using electronic yarns (picture). Anura Rathnayake produced the illuminated yarn and brought together a team consisting of Vajira Peiris, who wove the fabric, and Richard Arm, who embedded the fabric in a clear resin matrix. It is predicted that the bodies of future mass production cars will be made from composites so perhaps, with the inclusion of more LEDs, owners will be able to change the colour of their car on a daily basis!
