Re: Combadges from a prop perspective - placement and positioning

What if in the future, there would actually be a magnetic weave, where the magnet would be part of the fabric as some sort of fiber . It's possible to think this might be a thing in the far future, considering right now, we're seeing advancements in special weaves that wick moisture, or even shirts that have electronics in them. The commbadge area would only have to be a small area using this magnetic weave, but would be literally undiscernable to the eye.
An interesting thought - perhaps part of the uniform could be woven from synthetic fibres which have tiny grains of neodynium magnets dispersed within the fibres.

But I digress - my original post was looking at the combadge as a TV show "prop."
