We’ve heard about biofabric, the material that makes our wearable electronics more than just the stuff we wear, but what’s the difference between a biofab, and the material used in a new wearable?
Why does it matter?
The main difference between biofabrics and fabric is that they’re made of biomaterials, meaning that they contain biomolecules that are specific to a particular function.
For example, a protein can be made from amino acids, which are inorganic chemicals that are found in all living things.
Biofabric is more complex because it’s made up of different kinds of biomolecular materials.
Biofibers can be found in nature, as well as in the lab.
Biofluid is a synthetic polymer that can be used to make biofabriums.
In this case, the biofabrin is made up mostly of water and carbon.
The difference between biosignatures and biosignals is that biosignature is a property of the material itself, while biosignal is an ability of the materials they are attached to.
For instance, if you want to attach a biofluid to a textile, you would put a water molecule on the bottom of the biofluids, and then place the cotton around the cotton and attach it to the fabric.
What’s the catch?
If you want something that can make an electronic device, you need to make it in a specific way, such as by making a biofibre.
In the future, biofabrances could potentially replace fabric in our clothing, as the materials used to fabricate the biofiber are a lot cheaper, easier to use, and much more environmentally friendly.
