Scientists have created a "fabric" for clothes with wireless NFC connection

Researchers at the University of California, Irvine (UCI) have developed a new, high-tech form of fabric that can make clothes talk to each other. In such clothes, people will be able to exchange digital data in the process of a normal handshake or greeting gestures, and medicine will receive hospital gowns for constant and simple monitoring of the patient's condition.

Scientists have used the well-known NFC (Near Field Communication) technology as the basis for wireless communication for garments. Under normal conditions, NFC works at a distance of several centimeters, which is already familiar to many from the example of making payments using smartphones with NFC modules. Researchers from the University of California, Irvine, using the selection of materials and configuration of antenna elements, increase the NFC communication range to 120 cm.

Researchers have developed a metallized fabric antenna system that can be embedded (imprinted) into any conventional fabric. This will allow you to quickly arm any garments with NFC communication, if necessary. Most importantly, like the original NFC wireless technology, extended range technology also does not require power for receivers and transmitters and works on the basis of electromagnetic induction.

The wireless fabric is flexible and comfortable to wear. At the same time, it will be a convenient and secure solution for creating multi-node wireless networks on the human body, allowing many wearable and implantable sensors to be combined into one solution, which humanity is moving towards in its development.
