Clothes that take photos could soon be helping with the age-old problem of remembering people you meet at conferences.

A US research team has made a smart fabric that can detect the wavelength and direction of light falling on it, and could one day lead to clothes taking photos of everything around the wearer, according to this article on the BBC today.

“Led by Dr Yoel Fink from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the researchers have extended earlier work that placed sensors in relatively large polymer fibres.

Dr Fink and colleagues found a way to stretch the 25mm strands of polymer into much thinner fibres while maintaining the relative positions of the sensors.
