Fibre2Fashion
Researchers have developed thin light-emitting fibers capable of being woven into color-tunable textiles. According to media reports, these textiles, when provided with a very small electrical signal, emit blue or yellow light. Other colors could be available in the future.

Ultralight soft polymer sponges
Decoded Science
Researchers from Bayreuth University (Germany) have developed new sponges made of short fibers of a polyacrylate-based co-polymer. These sponges are very light (density as low as 2.72 mg/cm3, light a bird feather), highly porous (porosity of 99.6 percent), and bendable/compressible. Science can use these new sponges for environment remediation (oil absorption) and tissue engineering (cellular growth).
