Jun.1st, 2018, Dr. Chen was interviewed by ScienceNews Magazine and covered in a story entitled “Future Smart Clothes Could Pack Serious Gadgetry.” This article was highlighted as Front Cover of the SN Magazine. It is said “…Engineers are getting creative to make lightweight, flexible devices that keep clothing comfortable and still perform as well as their clunky counterparts...But fashionistas and gearheads can look forward to a future where electronic clothes are in vogue…” “…Primarily made of synthetic polymers and wool fibers, the fabric is lightweight, flexible and breathable. A 4-by-5 centimeter piece worn for a run in the sun can charge up a cell phone”.
