Scientists at Cornell University have created a dress that repels bacteria, and a jacket that protects the wearer from pollution. Professor Juan Hinestroza and his team coated fabrics with electrostatically charged silver nanoparticles.
"We think this is one of the first times that nanotechnology has entered the fashion world," Hinestroza said. He noted one drawback may be the garments' price: one square yard of nano-treated cotton would cost about $10,000.
