Synthetic fibres that imitate human skin, fabrics that deliver medicine or repel viruses. The application of technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, nanotechnology, semiconductor devices and even specialised software heralds a revolution in the textile industry that promises to change our daily lives.
4D printing promises intelligent materials, capable of adapting and changing based on external stimuli. From pipes that can automatically repair themselves to programmable biological tissues, the applications of these new structures are already advancing a total transformation of sectors such as construction, medicine or robotics.
Beyond the promises of the future of graphene and other materials, gallium nitride, GaN, is presented as one of the most promising. The heir of silicon, called to revolutionize the next generation of transistors with implications from 5G communications to autonomous vehicles, could also have the keys to global energy savings.
