Seems just like yesterday that Prof.Kevin Warwick of the University of Reading, UK took that bold step to implant a BrainGate device onto his median nerve in his forearm to be able to control electronic devices.
The road further down has revealed a fascinating bunch of technological features. Now, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana have developed what is called an “Epidermal Electronic System” (EES) which is a bendable electronic device that uses the molecular force on skin cells for adhesion. It even boasts of a power source small enough to power it. Interestingly, these could quite soon replace identification tags or become alternatives for Biometric systems. Hmmm, come to think of it, party goers could now be given a fancy tatoo with a hidden electronic circuit in their arms. Healthcare monitoring is just the begining.Read more here : Breakthrough: Electronic circuits that are integrated with your skin.
