Electronic skin is a reality and it is also wireless, this is how it works

The new electronic skin is, in fact, one flexible film which acts as a semiconductor. This skin adheres to the human body like a real patch. Thanks to the activity of a layer thin gallium nitridematerial capable of producing an electrical signal or mechanical vibration according to the type of stimulus, it is possible to create a sensitive enough system to monitor various elements of the health of the human body.

According to Jeehwan Kim del Mit, this new technology, already renamed e-skin, lends itself to various applications and “can be applied to the body like a bandage and, coupled with a wireless reader on the smartphone, allows you to monitor heart rate, sweating and other biological signals”. We will see what the applications of this technology will be.
