Pushing Textiles Forward through technology-
Exoskeleton 100x the Strength of Muscle
Exoskeletons100x the strength of human muscle are quickly becoming a reality with the use of common fishing line and sewing thread. The University of Texas Dallas Nano Technical Institute and an international team are using polymer based coiled fishing line and metal infused sewing thread that contract similarly to that of human muscles only 100x stronger. An article in "Science" journal dated 2/21/14 discusses the development of this superhuman technology that is being used in textiles resulting in super strong exoskeletons reminiscent of Ironman.
