Engineer Designs Stretchy Electronics


Jizhou Song, a professor at the University of Miami College of Engineering, along with two collaborators, has designed stretchable electronic devices. The electronics can even be twisted into a corkscrew-like shape without losing function. I am not sure exactly what that means, but it sounds awesome.

Apparently, stretchable electronics will be able to wrap around complex shapes without losing connectivity, and the press release boasts the design could be used in "eye cameras, smart surgical gloves, body parts, airplane wings, back planes for liquid crystal displays, and biomedical devices."

Perhaps it can also be used in an awesome, new interactive Stretch Armstrong, with a built-in three megapixel cam and wifi connectivity that will appeal to today's electronically jaded youth.
