This research result has applications in the development […]

A biocompatible magnetic skin that could enable new wearable systems

[ad_1] Credit: Almansouri et al. Researchers at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology have recently developed a flexible and imperceptible magnetic skin that adds permanent magnetic properties to all surfaces to which it is applied. This artificial skin, presented in a paper published in Wiley’s Advanced Materials Technologies journal, could have numerous interesting applications. […]

Wireless sensors stick to skin and track health

[ad_1] Using metallic ink, researchers screen-print an antenna and sensor onto a stretchable sticker designed to adhere to skin and track pulse and other health indicators, and beam these readings to a receiver on a person’s clothing.
