Integrating batteries, circuits or displays into fabric has been accomplished before, at least as proof of concept, but things using all three at once have been hard to come by.
Not anymore. CuteCircuit, a clothes company, and whiskey brand Ballantine’s collaborated on the development of the TshirtOS.
Long story short, it is a programmable cotton shirt with a built-in screen for displaying messages (Twitter updates, Facebook IMs), Instagram pictures, etc.
It can even snap pictures itself and send them to the wearer's photo stream.
What's even more amazing is that TshirtOS is said to be fully washable, despite possessing a microprocessor and everything else mentioned above (wirelessly connects, through an iOS app, to the Internet).
What's more, a headphone jack is supported, somehow, along with the camera (smallest in the world) without which that picture shooting functionality would not be possible.
CuteCircuit is experimenting with two versions. One has the ultra-slim PCB bearing an 8-bit ATMEL processor, while the other has a 32-bit ATMEL ARM Cortex.
