Australian scientists have developed a knitting technique capable of producing electrically-conductive Spandex-carbon nanotube hybrid textiles at industrial scales. As described earlier this month in a paper published in ACS Nano, the stretchable fabrics “exhibit excellent performance” as sensors and artificial muscles. Potential applications include adjustable smart clothing, robotics, and medical devices.
