Plastic- The Clothing Material of the Future?

3D printers usage is on the rise with a wide variety of items that can be created all using one complex machine. The newest advance in 3D printing technology is the creation of fabric made entirely out of plastic. The material ebbs and flows like another other piece of material currently found on store racks. A new and innovative software called Kinematics is responsible for the discovery.

I follow an interesting guy on Twitter, Mark Ahn, who retweeted about how there is great potential by utilizing plastic in clothing for many reasons. Plastic is inexpensive and could be bought by low income families who are on a tight budget. Ever heard of recyclable clothing? Plastic is 100% recyclable so when people tire of wearing a piece of clothing or it gets ruined it will no longer end up in a landfill.
