Development of e-skin
Electronic plays a very important role in developing
simple devices used for any purpose.
Material which mimics the Human Skin in one or
The best achievement as well the future example of
integrated electronics in the medical field is the
It made from biocompatible silicon rubber with
pressure sensitive sensors.
It can measure electrical activity of the heart, brain
waves and other vital signs.
Ultra thin skin turn on hand
e-skin can be directly laminated on the surface of the
skin, allowing us to electronically functionalize human
It attaches to the skin like a stick-on tattoo.
It borrowed directly kids temporary transfer tattoos.
It attaches through the weak forces of van de wals
Circuitry “spider web” of materials
Narrow snake like silicon filaments that serve as wires
connected to tiny the sensors designed to monitor
particular bodily functions.
a) attaching nanowire transistor to sticky substrate,
embedded in thin pressure sensitive rubber capable
of sensing wide range of pressure (california
b) First prototype for e-skin
a) a) stretchable solar cell used to power the electronic
a) self healing capacity
b) Made by nickel and plastic
Antenna is used to transmit the recorded
electrical signals of skin to the receiver.
Strain gauges are used for measuring the
signals generated by the heart.
Temperature sensors are used for measuring
It takes the signals from the body and transfer
them to the device.
Localized electrical stimulation: “smart bandage”:
temperature changes across the wound.
Muscle contractions in the neck can control the
mouse in computer game.
Stretchable sensor system able to measure pressure.
Strain composed of buckled CNT-based electrodes.
The right-most pane depicts the pressure distribution
measured by pressing on the center pixel.
Recent devices have already surpassed the capabilities
of biological skin in terms of sensitivity, spatial
resolution, and stretchability.
In future even virtual screens may be placed on the
device for knowing our body function.
It has bright future in robotics industries to make it
The electronics skin is one such device that
depicts the beauty of electronics and its uses
in daily life.
The electronic devices gain more demand in
the market when they are in compact in size
and best in functioning.
