For monitoring health or conduct studies, flexible body-worn sensors are the best choice for wearable device developers. However, sensors currently available are bulky and require charging. Now, a group of engineers at Stanford have developed highly flexible sticker sensors that don’t have any on-board electronic chips or any other rigid components. These sensors are powered […]
