A pen-and-ink system for drawing flexible circuits

Scientists report that they have developed conductive inks that allows users to "write" circuits almost anywhere — even on human skin.

Ultra-thin sensitive strain sensors

Ultra-thin sensitive strain sensors

Researchers have developed a new range of nanomaterial strain sensors that are 10 times more sensitive when measuring minute movements, compared to existing technology.

E-skin has a strong future stretching ahead

E-skin has a strong future stretching ahead

A material that mimics human skin in strength, stretchability and sensitivity could be used to collect biological data in real time.

More skin-like, e-skin that can feel

More skin-like, e-skin that can feel

Researchers developed a multimodal ion-electronic skin that distinguishes temperature from mechanical stimuli.

E-skin: recyclable alternative to wearables?

E-skin: recyclable alternative to wearables?

A wearable electronic device that’s 'really wearable” - a stretchy and fully-recyclable circuit board - can heal itself, much like real skin.

A flexible and highly reliable sensor

A flexible and highly reliable sensor

A novel e-skin, called TRACE, performs five times better than conventional soft materials. It is suitable for measuring blood flow for pulse diagnosis and helping robots to 'feel' the texture of surfaces.
