“Picture a world where your jeans or coat can generate enough energy to charge the battery on your mobile phone or a future where the curtains in your living room help power your lamps. Well it could be closer than you think.”
This is how the new smart materials and devices were presented at EURONEWS (January 3rd). The major work done at CeNTI was together with Têxteis Penedo, the owner of the sustainable lighting pillow. Some other developments about photovoltaic textiles were done under Dephotex European project.
Despite these developments, some flexible electrochromic devices, as well fragrances releasing substrates are presented in the play to demonstrate CeNTI development capabilities.
