Japanese firms have claimed that they developed a fibre that zaps bacteria and microbes if one comes closer. It is developed by electronics firm Murata Manufacturing and Teijin Frontier, dubbed PIECLEX, generates power from the expansion when worn by someone moving around. The low voltages aren't strong enough to be felt by the wearer, but they effectively stop bacteria and viruses from multiplying inside the fabric.
