Smart textiles - Design and Computation Arts at Concordia University in Montreal, Canada, have produced a material which with using the energy from the body creates electricity that can be used to charge mobile phones and other electronics. The garment is produced by weaving a electronic fabric into the clothing in a certain way that stores energy from the body. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-22199689
Smart Textiles Design Lab at The Swedish School of Textiles. We turn textile traditions and materiality upside down. We develop, explore, and experiment with new expressions for textiles through the use of various technologies and textile techniques. Details and examples are available under projects and publications. Our research is part of the Smart Textile Initiative at the Swedish School of Textiles at The University of Borås, Sweden.

Musical Textile - "The XY interactive textile is a large tactile surface for playing electronic music. The performer plays it simply by the movement of his/her hand on it's surface. This interface allows users to compose and interpret electronic music by choreographic movements. By its size, its texture, its flexibility and its transparency, this textile involves the whole body in the musical interpretation."
A P P A R E L – Clothing in the age of data accumulation and machine learning
A P P A R E L is an augmented reality experimental fashion prototype by the Paris-based anticipatory design studio N O R M A L S. Turning data and network activity into identity and style, the project replaces the details of contemporary couture with jiggly mesh geometry digital overlays.
