The future of Skin Electronics

Researchers in Japan created ultrathin, highly elastic display, marking the future of skin electronics.

The University of Tokyo’s Professor Takao Someya developed a new ultrathin, elastic display displaying electrocardiogram recorded by skin sensor.

The elastic skin can show the moving waveform of an electrocardiogram recorded by a breathable.

This integrated biomedical sensor system, called ‘skin electronics,’ combined with a wireless communication system, can transmit biometric data.

It is stretchable by as much as 45 percent of its original length.

Professor Takao Someya at the University of Tokyo’s Graduate School of Engineering, said:

“Our skin display exhibits simple graphics with motion. Because it is made from thin and soft materials, it can be deformed freely.”
