Skin-like CE may revolutionize wearable tech
Forget foldable phones. How about skin-like CE with stretchable sensors that can scan sweat, tears or saliva for use in healthcare monitoring, smart prosthetics or robots with enhanced sense capabilities? According to Wei Wu, a materials scientist at China’s Wuhan University, the era of stretchable CE is nearly upon us. While fabrication of artificial skin remains complex and time consuming, and materials and manufacturing challenges remain, he said the technology is quickly emerging as a promising new wrinkle in next-generation wearable devices.
