Researchers Make a Circuit So Flexible, It Can Wrap Around a Vein

If we really want to get the dream of implantable electronics off the ground, we'll need to figure out how to make circuit boards flexible enough to morph and move with our bodies. Thankfully, a team at The University of Texas at Dallas seems to have solved that, with thin film transistors that are flexible enough to… » 5/18/14 1:00pm 5/18/14 1:00pm

Researchers Build the First Stretchy, Bendy Light Circuit

Stretchable circuits are going to enable our wearable tech future, but they're super finicky to create. It was just under two years ago that scientists nailed stretchable electronic circuitry; now, Belgian researchers have come up with a flexible light circuit that carries light signals even when stretched. » 2/18/14 1:40pm 2/18/14 1:40pm
