Skin Gets Smart Diagnostic Tattoo

Tattoo-like ‘Patch,’ Future of Health ‘Monitoring’
(By Elizabeth Moore @ cnet News)
A miniature diagnostic device with the mechanical properties of skin was developed by engineers at the University of Illinois. It can be mounted directly to the wrist or anywhere on the human body for EMG and other measurements. The circuit almost becomes part of the skin as it bends, wrinkles, and stretches. Components in the circuit include sensors, LEDs, transistors, radio frequency capacitors, wireless antennas, and conductive coils and solar cells.  — Photo Gallery HERE
