First Electronic Tattoo Printed Onto Skin

5 posts in this topic

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.

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.
