Scientists have developed an electric skin
Scientists have developed an electric skin in Japan have created an amazing electric skin, which will turn humans into smartphones on the go. The e-skin will be used to track heart rate and monitor human health. With the advent of e-skin, fitness applications and devices will become obsolete.
Scientists who make the smart skin say the invention could be used to monitor blood oxygen levels, heart rate and other physical functions.
According to scientists at the University of Tokyo, this e-skin is much thinner and much more flexible. It also has protective layers.
This e-skin is also very easy to use. Just place it on your skin and it will start giving you information about your health.
Scientists have used polymer light-emitting diodes and organic photo detectors.
They are very thin and flexible. Therefore, they easily attach to the skin and respond to every movement of the body. A high quality protective film, less than 2 micrometers thick, is used to protect these devices.
At the moment this e-skin is not so old. It goes bad in a few hours. Scientists are also working to increase its lifespan.
