Dressed in blue jeans and ditching his tie, Putin jumped into the driver's seat of an orange dump truck Tuesday and drove across the bridge with cameras recording every move. One camera in the cab of the truck captured his small talk with a construction worker who was along for the ride and broadcast it across state media.

Pratt Institute’s Tek-Tiles project, focused on developing ideas for embedding and manufacturing technology into fabrics, has been forced to deal with the two industry stalwarts of sustainability versus technology. Deb Johnson, founder of the Brooklyn Fashion and Design Accelerator, or BF+DA, and its director of sustainable studies, who headed the Tek-Tiles project, said at a Textile Talk at Texworld USA Tuesday, that the industry has entered a new age in material technology. “This is an age that will have a massive impact on the function of clothing and the way our products communicate with us and each other,” Johnson said. “We want to work on developing responsible technology.” The Tek-Tiles project is aligned with a $486,000 grant that will expand the BF+DA to include a research center … [Read more...] about New Tek-Tiles Project Demonstrates Next Generation Smart Fabric Potential
