"It's often the way though. A company gives details of an exciting new product under development, so that they can get more investment in it, only for the transition from prototype to full production, to run into problems. I once worked in a…"

"It's funny that that article is from 2007. So it's hardly new. They must have run into problems somewhere otherwise you'd be able to buy it somehow surely?"

"Connections are always a weak spot in any electrical/electronic project and fashion items suffer even more so because of the constant flexing caused by the movement of the wearer which will eventually cause the connection to fail. However as an…"

"Yes, absolutely. You can cut and extend the two wires (the thin wires being the first and the metal core being the second) with normal electrical wire. This way you can have parts that light up and parts that don't."

"Yikanee, you might be talking about something like this dress by 3lectromode:http://3lectromode.com/asymmetricalmodern001.html Her circuit has a few bells and whistles - you can make a simpler version with just a battery, a length of wire, a…"

"It looks like a very thin EL wire, but instead of using a copper wire as inner conductor, they used a thread. This way they were able to obtain a very fine thread, 0.12 mm in diameter. Interesting, even if I would like to see the solutions they…"

"I'm looking for that too. I haven't found what I'm looking for. It's a wire, but the whole thing doesn't light up, instead you can put a lightbulb (your color choice) onto any part of the thread, and its also battery…"

"Yes i was searching the web for it too. and you have it in different diameters, from 0,9mm to 5mm thick. I like it very much because you can integrate it in every fabric. And it's not that expensive ;) If you type EL wire at Google, then you…"

Electroluminescent thread

Hello, i was at a convention this weekend and a speaker mentioned a product like electroluminescent wire only it was a thread. It could be woven into fabric or used to sew fabric together. It can then be controlled by a battery source and light up. I guess this a new technology but it sounds interesting. Has anyone come across this?
