Wearable devices currently are a key focus of researchers, with engineers working on printed electronics and other enabling technologies to make these types of devices more flexible and comfortable for users while still maintaining optimal functionality. Researchers at Waseda University in Japan have taken this research to the next level with the design of new processes and materials for what are essentially electronic device-tattoos made using elastomeric “nanosheet” film. The devices are ultrathin and can be stuck onto human skin, making them both cost-effective and easy to produce while also being highly comfortable, according to a cross-disciplinary team of engineers at the university that worked on the project. Indeed, user-friendly comfort and simplified fabrication are two of the current key design goals for engineers developing wearables. The Waseda team not only a...
