RESEARCHERS DEVELOPED HYBRID 3D PRINTING METHOD TO MAKE FLEXIBLE WEARABLE DEVICES

Wearable electronic devices that intend to track and measure the body’s movements must be soft enough to flex and stretch to accommodate every body-movement. But, integrating rigid electronics on skin-like flexible materials has proven to be challenging. Clearly, Such components cannot stretch like soft materials can, and this mismatch frequently causes wearable devices to fail. Recently scientists solved t ...

Graphene Patterned at Room Temp

This room temperature method, instead takes the easily grown graphene-on-copper and in a single-step (they claim) etch and transfer the graphene circuitry to nearly any substrate, including the flexible polymer substrates of the future. Their trick: cutting the circuit patterns into a simple shadow mask. "Desired micro-patterns are designed by a computer-aided design [CAD] software, enabling a commercial la ...
