Tired of the tangle of chargers and cords at your feet? Scientists at the University of Texas at Dallas have discovered a way to create energy generating textiles from powder-infused carbon nanotubes. The nanotubes in use will be able to support superconducting particles, such as boron and magnesium powder, with a more manageable form without binders or lasers. If the scientists are successfully able to weave this energy-transmitting yarn into ready-to-wear material, you could soon bid adieu to all those jumbled up gadget chargers. Instead, this energy-transmitting yarn could be fashioned into lightweight batteries you can wear.
