Researchers at the University of Illinois are developing a method for implanting LED lights underneath a person’s skin. A series of silicon and rubber layers form a flexible conductive construct that can be triggered by a small electrical current.  Besides acting as a futuristic body modification, this allows for the passive illumination of sub-dermal conditions, potentially alerting individuals to potential conditions as wounds heal.
