The Rogers Research Group at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has given us stick-on electronic tattoos and stretchable batteries, but now they’ve outdone themselves by creating the first electronic sensor to be printed directly onto human skin.

The printable sensors are an extension of the groups electronic tattoos and can measure skin hydration, temperature and electric signals from muscle and brain and activity.

This doesn't smack of the beast.  No, not one little bit.

Likely the excuse they will use to put them on newborns (coming to a theatre near you)

Well according to the article, they flake off after two weeks, so I wouldn't be surprised if they did do this for newborns while still in the hospital.
