Researchers at NASA's Center for Nanotechnology in California are working on next-generation e-textiles that may one day allow users to wear their electronics components. Using copper, copper-oxide fibers and platinum, the team stitched together a piece of writable-memory fabric capable of retaining information for more than 100 days. Experts say the technology could find its way into the medical field via wearable devices for monitoring such things as vital signs.
