Researchers non-miraculously turn wine into clothes6/12/2012
Researchers at the University of Western Australia have found a way to turn fermenting wine into clothing. Yay? When scientists discovered that the bacteria acetobacter would leave a rubbery layer on top of contaminated vats of wine, they later used it to transform the liquid into a wet fabric that they could wrap around a mold or a human body, creating a clingy, seamless material. Of course, there are a few drawbacks. The material doesn't have a lot of flexibility, making it difficult to take off or move around in. Also, it retains all the glorious smell associated with a glass of wine. So if you're looking for resilient garments that don't leave you reeking like a drunk, it's probably best to keep shopping,
Would you wear a dress made of fermenting liquid?
