There are a lot of convenient ways to keep track of one's daily activities thanks to the fast growing wearable technology industry, yet the health-monitoring electronic patches takes such creations to the next level. Instead of bracelets and clip-on gadgets, this device sticks on like a temporary tattoo for a less intrusive experience.

What makes the health-monitoring electronic patches even more exciting, however, is its ability to be used in other fields. For instance, it can bring smartphones off of the shelf and onto the skin, not to mention other daily commercial uses. The materials used to make the health-monitoring electronic patches are incredibly affordable as well. Of course, the price matches their longevity, which is a day at most. The patch was designed by John Rogers.
