New E-Skin Brings Wearable Tech To The Next Level
Scientists at the University of Tokyo have developed a flexible sensor thinner than plastic wrap and lighter than a feather.
Recently, we have seen a rapid expansion in the field of wearable health devices. Many of these devices can help users lead healthier and more productive lives; however, they may be cumbersome or unrealistic to use on a daily basis. Imagine if devices could be designed to mold seamlessly with the human body, such that they almost disappear entirely. A new technology may make this possible, in the form of an ‘imperceptible’ electronic skin that can monitor the body, or help people to communicate through touch.
