Printing Stretchable, Bendable Circuits on Artificial Skin

Printing Stretchable, Bendable Circuits on Artificial Skin

Researchers have spent nearly two decades trying to develop skin-like integrated circuits that can be stretched, folded, bent and twisted - working all the while - and then snap back without fail, every time. Such circuits presage a day of wearable and implantable products, but one hurdle has always stood in the way.

New Electronic Paper Displays Brilliant Colours

New Electronic Paper Displays Brilliant Colours

Imagine sitting out in the sun, reading a digital screen as thin as paper, but seeing the same image quality as if you were indoors. Thanks to research it could soon be a reality. A new type of reflective screen - sometimes described as 'electronic paper' - offers optimal colour display, while using ambient light to keep energy consumption to a minimum.

Solar Panels of the Future; Technology and Aesthetics Combined

Marjan van Aubel Studio signed the colourful solar- paneled roof of the Netherlands pavilion. The skylights are made out of lightweight ASCA organic transparent solar cells (OPV), that are 100% recoverable and of non-toxic materials. By combining technology, aesthetics and sustainable materials, the studio has created the solar panels of the future.
