Making flexible electronics: ‘Your smartphone in your skin’

“Researchers at MIT have developed a new method for fabricating electronic components that opens up a world of possibilities, including flexible, stackable, semitransparent and noninvasive devices. They could someday be integrated into our clothes, shoes, contact lenses and even our brains! It’s been called “remote epitaxy” and the “peel and stack” method, and it involves the use of the wonder material known as graphene.”
