The Co.DESIGN website has this article on the research done by John Rogers, a materials scientist at the University of Illinois, who has come up with these "incredible skin-wearable circuits."
They stick on your skin with a stamp. They can stretch and flex with the natural movements of your body, lasting about two weeks until they flake off from natural exfoliation. And since theyre in direct contact with the skin, they can integrate with you more seamlessly than the iPhone, Nike+ Fuelband or any other wearable product thats been conceived to date.
Our aim is to enable hardware that integrates much more naturally with the body, Rogers says. Conventional hard electronics, built on silicon wafers in the usual way, are unacceptable for generalized, everyday continuous use and monitoring, due to extreme mismatches in shape, weight and stiffness from tissues of the body.
