|SAN FRANCISCO， June 19 (Xinhua) -- Researchers at University of California， Berkeley， have been working on a project to develop a color-changing "smart thread" that turns fabric into a computerized display.
The project， known as Ebb， is not about a light-up screen; it is about fabric that changes color.
It was named Ebb because "the color change conjured images of the ebb and flow of the tides， rather than the rapid changes of traditional screen based media，" explained the researchers with UC Berkeley's School of Information.
The core technology consists of conductive threads individually coated with thermochromic paint. When electricity is supplied to the threads， they heat up and gradually change color. The team， led by PhD student Laura Devendorf， an artist， designer and computer scientist with degrees in computer science and visual art， has used the smart thread to create seven different crocheted and woven fabric swatches.
Smart fabric could be used to create clothes or other textiles with dynamically changing colors or patterns， according to a recent posting at UC Berkeley School of Information's website. Possibilities include: a single garment that lets the wearer customize its color or pattern for the day; a watch woven directly into the cuff of the garment; or a striped scarf that offers real-time bus information， and the stripes fade one by one， indicating the number of minutes before the bus arrives， or a shirt with a slogan that updates automatically to match the wearer's Facebook status.
The project won a Best Paper award at the 2016 CHI conference， an event last month on human-computer interaction.
While it is unlikely for anybody to find Ebb-based clothes in a store anytime soon， Project Jacquard at Google' s Advanced Technology and Projects (ATAP) group， an in-house technology incubator， which works with the UC Berkeley team， is exploring a variety of approaches to wearable computing.
Project Jacquard， as a platform， encompasses techniques for creating fashion fabrics with conductive fibers woven into them， plus small， flexible computing components and feedback devices such as haptics or LEDs， along with software that application programming interfaces can use to exchange data with the garment.
BEIJING Air Max 2018 Sale Clearance , Jan. 18 (Xinhua) -- Two-way movement will be normal for the exchange rate of the Chinese yuan in the future given uncertainties in the global economic recovery and the monetary policies of major economies, according to a senior official with the country's top forex regulator Thursday.
China will continue to improve the formation mechanism of the renminbi exchange rate to enhance its flexibility and keep it generally stable within a reasonable range, according to Wang Chunying Air Max 2017 Sale Clearance , spokesperson with the State Administration of Foreign Exchange (SAFE).
The central parity rate of the Chinese currency renminbi, or the yuan, weakened 66 basis points to 6.4401 against the U.S. dollar Thursday after three days of strengthening.
The Chinese currency has risen by over 1.5 percent in value compared with the U.S. dollar since the first trading day this year.
Wang attributed the yuan's rise to a weakening dollar and steady domestic economic growth.
The dollar index Air Max 90 Sale Clearance , a gauge that measures the U.S. currency's strength against six other major currencies, staged consistent declines in the past trading days over domestic uncertainties and a strengthening euro due to stronger-than-expected EU economic recovery.
In a sign of rising confidence in the currency, China's central bank decided last week to adjust the mechanism it created last year to support the renminbi and check capital flight amid worries of a weakening yuan.
Chinese enterprises are gradually changing their old thinking on the renminbi exchange rate Air Max Sale Clearance , with fewer betting on unilateral appreciation or depreciation, said Wang, adding that SAFE will continue to prompt enterprises to improve risk management.
