John Rogers has been working to develop epidermis-implantable LEDs with the University of Illinois. The thin meshy material he's created is finer and more flexible than any form the technology has taken to date.
The microscopic implantable LEDs are strewn across the polymer material called PDMS. The high-tech fabric is woven with much promise for the medical industry, capable of eventually helping to monitor healing tissues and drug administration.
