Nanoparticles Could Let You Wear a Computer Made Out of Cotton (Mashable)

Dec 30 2011

Mashable – Tablets and ereaders are so 2011 — a global group of material scientists have found a way to turn cotton into transistors and electrical circuits. In the (not so distant) future, Apple’s newest product might just be a t-shirt.
That might be a bit of fantasy but the science is very real. The group of scientists — from top universities in Italy, France and America — created two kinds of transistors, an organic field-effect transistor (OFET) similar to those found in a computer’s CPU and a lower-voltage organic electrochemical transistor (OCET), ExtremeTech reported.
