    The T-shirt works without attaching wires, electrodes and sensors to the body, explains Younes Messaddeq, the professor who led the team that developed the technology.

  • Electronic Tattoos That Let You Control Your Mobile Device from...Your Knuckles

    Want to control music or lights all from the convenience of your…knuckle? Computer scientists from Saarland University and Google have developed a thin-film electronic tattoo to let you do just that. Similar to a child’s temporary tattoo, the sticker can adhere to parts of the body that weren’t always possible, such as bony structures.

  • Smart Homes Need Smart Batteries

    As our homes get smarter, the systems powering our homes also need to become smarter. To work toward that goal, researchers from the Institute of Automation, the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the School of Automation and Electrical Engineering at the University of Science and Technology Beijing are proposing a solution to optimize power consumption in batteries.
