Dream of the future

Postby Pete Tabord » Fri Mar 07, 2014 10:11 am

I had a strange dream last night. Was at a presentation (in the dream) where a company was launching a new cloth like material that was also a computer, but which you could additionally make into clothes and so on. The computer was made of microscopic chips at each intersection of the cloth weave, and the fibres were the links between the chips The more cloth you had the greater the storage and processing power because the cloth included a repeating pattern of processors, memory chips and so on.

It supported wi-fi and Bluetooth and the display was on a watch-like thingy.

Should I get a patent, do you think? Or is someone already doing this and I'd picked up the information somewhere without noticing? Or should I simply lay off the cheese? :roll:

One big advantage of that clothing Pete: if any part of it became worn, you could just solder a new piece in. I think it's got traction. Create a bit more mystique about it, rig up a fake prototype and the clothing big hitters will buy you out for millions, just to suppress it. =D>
