Has anyone ever created a dress or shirt that has the circuit pathways visible on it? Answered

I've seen some of the Soft circuit designs but was wondering if anyone has created a full computer complete with memory, flexible screen, keyboard, "koala" pad for mousing around and USB connection? It could be a jacket, shirt, or skirt but would have to have something to input data and be able to survive cleaning at a dry cleaner.
How would someone be able to make this?

Hasn't been done. Problem is a modern computer in the sense of what you're thinking has upwards of tens of thousands of connections and wires -- crammed onto a circuit board. Doing so in flexible fabric would be a nightmare.

You can have rudimentary circuit designs involving microcontrollers (see: lillypad arduino) that can perform simple functions, but not with 'mouse and screen/usb connection' etc.

I am surprised you wont admito the super computer in your
dichroic eye glasses screen tracking your iris for mouse movement
and powered by a thermionic temple link, should I continue ? :-D

Close; the prototype had a fissile power source and caused the wearer to die instantly, not from radiological genetic damage, but from the 10,000 degree exhaust gas that exited the power supply mounted internally next to the liver.

*as such the project was scrapped and we never spoke of it again.

It had so much potential. Iron man stole the idea for the arc reactor, they finally got it figured out using fusion power, far safer and less likely to obliterate a busload of orphans.

Fusion better in principle then Fission ;-Þ
Puts a big hole in your chest.
High chance to die from infection then.
Rather extreme scenario to keep iron bomb filings from invading
your heart and organs !
Still, I really enjoyed the first movie :-)
