Researchers at the Polytechnic School in Montreal, Canada have developed a soft polymer based fibre that can be woven into fabrics to be virtually undetectable. So what I hear you ask in amazement? This means that it will be possible for say a car seat to become a touch pad. Touching the seat will enable you to move the seat or open and shut a window, thereby doing away with loads of buttons – which I personally like! It means that the fabric surface acts like an iPad or iPhone touch screen using finger touches or swipes to control the gadgets in your car.

It would seem that BMW are very interested as are General Motors. In fact BMW featured the material in its Vision Efficient Dynamics concept car. Personally I can’t see the point and I’d like to know what happens if the seat is ripped, you’ll probably end up locked in the car until the world ends! By Graham Hill
