New Silicon Circuits Invented: Bendy, Stretchy, Rubbery

Scientists have made a discovery that makes silicon cool again: it can now be made into bendy chips. Stiff silicon devices are powerful, of course, but not the best fit for some situations such as advanced medical sensors. Now a team University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has worked out a way to stick 1.5… » 3/28/08 6:19am 3/28/08 6:19am
