Merging humans and technology.
The printable sensors are an extension of the Rogers Research Group’s electronic tattoos and can measure skin hydration, temperature and electric signals from muscle and brain and activity.
Once the sensors are printed on the skin, researchers use a commercially available spray-on bandage to protect the electronics, which keeps them in place for about two weeks. To achieve a longer lifespan, sensors would need to be embedded under the skin like read tattoos. Stay tuned. That can’t be far off.
