Dr. Yoel Fink, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Our clothes help define us, yet the fabrics we wear haven’t really evolved over much of human history. However recent breakthroughs in fiber material and fabric processing now allow us to design and produce fibers and fabrics that see, hear, sense, communicate, store and convert energy, regulate temperature, monitor health, and change color. In this talk Dr. Fink will discuss the use of diode fibers for creating fabric communications systems allowing the exchange of information between people and platforms using line of sight fabric based optical communications.
