Embodied Interaction's iSkin concept implements mobile sensors onto one's body. This wearable tech surface is easy to bend, stretch and customize thanks to its biocompatible materiality.

Because of it's flexible nature, iSkin is easy to wear on any part of the body including the forearm, wrist or finger. As society becomes more connected to their smartphone devices, skin-worn mobile sensors are only set to become more popular among tech-conscious consumers.

This particular product features touch-sensitive capabilities and can detect two levels of pressure. The product's touch screen features even work when it is stretched up to 30% of its regular size, making it easy to transform into a skin-attached alternative to traditional headphones, smartwatch straps and mobile phone microphones.
