I ve never been one for hi-vis.It is not merely vanity, though I admit luminous yellow is just not my colour.It s that too many cyclists see it as a panacea, a fluorescent force-field that will protect them from the dangers of the road, whereas the truth is you can be done up head-to-toe as a highlighter pen and it ll not help you at all if you re always cowering in a driver s blind spot.I don t wear proper cycling gear to ride two miles to the Guardian s Manchester office each day.If it s raining, I ll don a waterproof jacket or, more honestly, take the car .But generally I m in my civvies and so am arguably the prime market for Volvo s new LifePaint, a water-based reflective safety spray , which promises to turn ordinary clothes into beacons when in direct glare of headlights.

For more stories from WIRED's mission-driven businesses package, click here.US-based outdoor-clothing company Patagonia uses materials that either benefit, or cause minimal damage to, the environment.Having been steadily successful since it was founded in 1973, the company has doubled in size, tripled its profits and become a certified B Corp over the past ten years.The company's annual revenues, in excess of $600 million in 2013, have continued to rise, despite - or rather, partly due to - a programme called Worn Wear.Patagonia, still privately owned by its founder, 77-year-old Yvon Chouinard, continues to donate at least one per cent of its annual net revenue to environmental causes, to date totalling $36 million."There is nothing we can change about making clothing that would have more positive environmental impact than making less," she says.
Researchers have developed a new solar powered battery, capable of changing its shape to fit various flexible forms.The team says the battery could transform the wearables market by lowering the space required for a battery, a big benefit for e-skin and e-clothes products.See Also: America trumps Europe in fitness wearables The components are electronically connected via flexible copper-polymer interconnects, mounted on a highly elastic silicone core, and enclosed within a silicone shell, the team said.The authors demonstrated the use of these systems for continual logging and wireless transmission of body temperature data in a variety of realistic scenarios, such as monitoring skin temperature during physical exercise and bathing, and measuring temperature changes during breathing.The battery may also be a welcome addition to the e-skin market, with researchers recently creating a much longer lasting tattoo that changes color and can even track things like UV rays and heart-rate.Wearables are still a young market, but with 67 percent growth from 2015 to 2016, more companies are starting to see the potential of devices able to gather more data on the customer.

May has been a big month for personal robotics.So keep tabs on your parents and grandparents: they could be cyborgs one day.The suit works a little like an image stabilizer in a camera.There are some actuators in the belt that detect shaky movements.The team even received $2.9 million in funding from DARPA, the US government's futuristic technology arm, to develop the suit so that soldiers on the field would suffer less from muscle cramps.The researchers hope eventually the suit will mimic natural skin to the point where you can pretty much slip it on before you put actual clothes on.In the video above, though, you'll see that the robotic suit is more in the middle of the road between being the clunky power-walking suits Hyundai made and actual clothes.In the past few years, engineers have been making strides toward building robotic walking suits that would give paralyzed patients the ability to move again.This obsession with restoring limb function has led to things like mind-controlled arms and printable hands, among many other life-changing advances in prosthetics.Soon enough, these people won't have to worry about looking like robots — it'll just be like putting on a second skin.Read the original article on Tech Insider.More from Tech Insider:Take a tour of London's new super-sleek train systemGoogle just released a new messaging app that lets you do much more than send messages GOOG There's a secret Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Airbnb in NYC you can rent for freeGoogle just announced its Amazon Echo competitorA war is brewing between brands and the social media 'influencers' they payNOW WATCH: A hair scientist debunks the biggest myth about shavingLoading video...
