Researchers at Nokia and the University of Cambridge are developing an electronic skin that yields to your epidermis. The skin includes a touchpad, responds to touch and pressure and can be pulled like a piece of gum without any loss of performance.

Website Ecouterre theorizes that the electronic skin could "spell the end of bulky, immutable devices, as well as usher in a new generation of high-tech clothing and accessories. Gadget-heads of the future could be interacting with their electronics at a far more intimate level".
