A team of Swiss researchers from the Technology in Textiles (TechinTex) project are working on a new type of wound dressing which can monitor the state of a wound using fiber optic threads woven into the dressing. The fibers are designed to change color in response to changes in the acidity of the wound, which is an indicator of its healing status.

When you’re cold, the jeans start off as blue. As you warm up, the color of the jeans fades to white. The color-changing effect works with thermochromic dye that has a molecule inside that augment their hue based on temperature range. The Canadian brand Naked & Famous is also behind fashion items like the pair of scratch-and-sniff jeans, glow-in-the-dark jeans and a pair of jeans so thick and heavy that they could stand on their own. Available @ Barney's.
