I want to create a solar shirt


i want to design a solar shirt by using a thin film of solar. like by attaching the solar foil in such a way that it cannot affect the washing of shirt. and then that power is converted into electricity by batttery. I want your views and guidance on this


Are you looking at it as a gadget ?
If yes does it need to be washed ?
If not what would be the purpose of such a shirt. Here is an example of a 3d printed Kinematic dress by Nervous System; which is a system of plates and rigid hinges, maybe retrofitting small solar cells might be simpler in such an interconnected system : https://n-e-r-v-o-u-s.com/projects/sets/kinematics/


Molybdenum di-telluride based flexible panels could be your answer. You’ll have to wait a while to get them, though.
