This First Of Its Kind Jacket Absorbs Heat And Conducts Electricity

By

What if our clothing could generate power? It’s a question that’s long plagued scientists, who have been developing shirts and jackets that create electricity through body motion for years. 

The activewear company Vollebak thinks it has just such a jacket — one that can conduct low levels of electricity that won’t harm the person wearing it. Except this outerwear doesn’t rely on kinetics. The Vollebak jacket generates power through a unique material called graphene, which is so tough to isolate and use that it was practically theoretical until 2004.
