  • Looks like sim card huh ! But this is only 40micrometres thick some 50-nanometres , far for flexible than the brittle, millimetre – thick silicon chips.
  • S- shape structure ( made of silicon and gallium)why skin ? Skin is the largest organ. It provides our main point of nonvisual sensory interaction with the outside world, and it is a place where people have attempted to interface electrodes and electronics for decades.
  • can be used to measure electrical activity from the brain, heart, and skeletal muscles. applied electronic skin to a throat and interfaced it with video game software, the man control the video game “Sokoban,” where a player pushes boxes around a warehouse, by simply saying “up,” “down,” “right,” and “left.” The electronic skin detects the difference in muscle movement for each word, and the software translates those differences into commands for the video game.track hydration level

  • This research have been going on for 15 years. Been through many difficulties like making electronics soft enough and flexible as skin yet not brittle. Some problems still exist like SWEATING , continuous shedding of skin cell.
  • I find this article interesting , but I have to read up from more sources to know more details of what it is and how it works.
  • Some researchers say Infuse may increase the risk of male sterility; Medtronic maintains that the product is safe.
