Although our talk2myShirt coverage is very seldom mentioning so called ‘plastic electronics’ this field is highly interesting to wearable electronic as it focuses to move electronic functions from hard surface substrate to flexible, thin-film carrier mediums.
Thin and flexible electronic is next to other applications highly interesting for the integration into clothing as it can be laminated to conventional textiles and connected via conductive yarn traces to form a more complex electronic functionality.
To keep up with the latest development in the plastic electronic area I suggest to add to your knowledge library +Plastic Electronics a magazine with online presents covering cutting edge plastic electronic developments and market analysis.
