‘Electronic skin’ could replace bulky electrodes : Nature News

‘Electronic skin’ has been developed that records heartbeats, brain activity and muscle contractions as accurately as bulky conventional electrodes, yet is no thicker than a human hair.

The patch, created by John Rogers, a materials scientist at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, and his colleagues, consists of a flexible and stretchy lattice of sensor-laden circuits. It can be applied and removed like a temporary tattoo, and sticks to skin without adhesives.
