UK scientists have developed techno-trousers that can stop sweaty smells and even repel mosquitoes.
The so-called 'smart clothes' benefit from a technique known as micro-encapsulation, which incorporates minute droplets or particles into the fabric.
These fragrant chemicals are capsulated by the high-tech process so that they will not evaporate until the clothing is worn.
Quest International, part of ICI, and Woolmark Company developed the technology, and have demonstrated techniques to package deodorants, perfumes, insect repellents or anti-tobacco agents in microcapsules that can be bound to any fabric.
Early trials have been successful.
Shibani Mohindra, new business development director at Quest International, told the Daily Telegraph: "Until now, textiles have only utilised the senses of vision and touch but a new way of looking at the impact of senses on our lives - 'sensism' - will revolutionise the textile industry."
