Our electronics are going to become soft and more flexible. MIT is working on such technology. MIT engineers developed a hydrogel made of over 90% water that can now be used to incorporate electronics. It can mimic the mechanical and physiological properties of the human body. For instance, this technology can be used for a smart wound dressing with sensors.
This sticky, stretchy material can incorporate temperature sensors, LED lights, and other electronics. In the future, it may be used to deliver electronics inside the body. MIT has the full story.
