Abstract

Mosaic Textile is a wearable ambient display using non-emissive color-changing textiles. The system consists of textile modules, their controllers and substrate fabric. The textile module is called "Fabcell" (fabric element) and is composed of conductive yarns and liquid crystal ink. Combining fabcells, as if they are used as pixels, produces real-space ambient display. Different from emissive flexible display such as organic EL, dynamic graphics. using non-emissive color-changing textiles actualizes hospitable and aesthetic information display, blending in with environment. Our method will be expected to design brand-new communication media intended for fabric artificial materials, used for fashion and interior decoration.
