Bendable Circuits

Opening the door for a generation of flexible electronic devices, the world's first "completely integrated, extremely bendable circuits" were developed and demonstrated by a research team led by John Rogers of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

The flexible stretchy silicon circuits could be used to build advanced brain implants, health monitors or smart clothing.

Roger's team is developing stretchable electronics that lie on the surface of the brain to monitor patients suffering from epilepsy. Another possible application they are considering is to incorporate sensors and electronics into surgical gloves to provide the surgeon with additional information during an operation.
