IFM’s Electric Plaid is a textile display technology and design material. It’s used by IFM to create hand woven, individual artworks, interior design and architectural surfaces. Electric Plaid combines woven electronic circuits, colour-change inks and drive electronics, to add “time and motion” to textile patterns and design. Patterns change colour slowly over time, to give you information or change the decor of the room. Electric Plaid is a reflective colour-change medium, it doesn’t light up. It can be combined with IFM’s textile sensors, StitchSwitch, to create fully interactive textiles and artworks.
