NOTTINGHAM – Researchers at Nottingham Trent University have received a £1.3m grant to help develop the world’s first wearable computer.

The university’s Advanced Textiles Research Group (ATRG) aims to create a manufacturing process to enable complex electronic circuitry to be embedded into yarns on an industrial scale known as ‘e-yarns’ (electronic yarns).

The research group – which has already pioneered technologies such as clothes embedded with solar cells to charge mobile phones – aims to develop the process for creating the new electronic yarns over the next three years.
