Gizmowatch reports on the development of spray-on clothes created by cross-linking fibres that adhere to one another forming an instant non-woven fabric. The liquid, which dries on hitting human skin, forms a garment of choice that can actually be washed and re-worn.

The aerosol spray, created through collaboration between Imperial College London and the Royal College of Art, consists of cotton fibres and polymers with solvents to keep it liquid until it is applied.
