LONDON: Next-generation wearable technology may be developed by creating flexible fibres and adding acids from red wine, scientists say.

Extracting tannic acid from red wine, coffee or black tea, led a team of scientists from the University of Manchester in the UK to develop much more durable and flexible wearable devices.

The addition of tannins improved mechanical properties of materials such as cotton to develop wearable sensors for rehabilitation monitoring, drastically increasing the devices lifespan.
