MIT Working On Stretchable Hydrogel Electronics

hydrogel

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.
