We all know the important place nanotechnology will have in the future. All of the gadgets we have now are incredible smaller, faster and smarter than their predecessors.

Now researchers at Stanford University have started researching nanotech tees and “how carbon nanotubes can be used to create thin, flexible batteries. They’ve moved on from paper and ink to cotton and polyester… the research team is bringing us closer to having wearable electronics and conductive fabrics.”

This sounds too cool. I don’t know about you, but I think blasting some Rolling Stones while wearing their vintage tour t-shirt would be pretty amazing. Check out more on battery-powered and nanotech tees, as well as the technology behind them, by following the links below.
