An Elastic Light-Emitting Polymer for Stretchable, Wearable Displays

No one would ever imagine crumpling up their smartphone, television or another electronic device. Today's displays - which are flat, rigid and fragile - lack the ability to reshape to interactively respond to users.

Robot Aided Assembly Helps Speed Pace of Discovery for New Technology

The ability to make, say, a flexible screen or a new solar panel, starts with discovering a new combination of materials with unusual properties at the atomic scale. But in the field of 2D materials, which is considered one of the most exciting areas for future electronics, scientists still have to laboriously hand-make each new potential material before they can test its capabilities.

Robotic Hand with a Gecko Inspired Grip

Across a vast array of robotic hands and clamps, there is a common foe: the heirloom tomato. You may have seen a robotic gripper deftly pluck an egg or smoothly palm a basketball - but, unlike human hands, one gripper is unlikely to be able to do both and a key challenge remains hidden in the middle ground.

3D Printed Vaccine Patch Offers Vaccination Without a Shot

Scientists have created a 3D-printed vaccine patch that provides greater protection than a typical vaccine shot. The trick is applying the vaccine patch directly to the skin, which is full of immune cells that vaccines target. The resulting immune response from the vaccine patch was 10 times greater than vaccine delivered into an arm muscle with a needle jab, according to a study conducted in animals.

AI System Identifies Buildings Damaged by Wildfire

People around the globe have suffered the nerve-wracking anxiety of waiting weeks or months to find out if their homes have been damaged by wildfires that scorch with increased intensity. Now, once the smoke has cleared for aerial photography, researchers have found a way to identify building damage within minutes.

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 Manufacturing Technique for Flexible Electronics

Ultrathin, flexible computer circuits have been an engineering goal for years, but technical hurdles have prevented the degree of miniaturization necessary to achieve high performance. Now, researchers have invented a manufacturing technique that yields flexible, atomically thin transistors less than 100 nanometers in length - several times smaller than previously possible.

Metamaterial Technologies

Meta Materials Inc. (META®) is an early-stage company that has developed multiple technologies for designing and manufacturing metamaterials. These are finely patterned structures in either 2D or 3D that enable the manipulation of light and energy to achieve properties not seen in nature. Metamaterials have multiple potential applications, including eyewear, communications, and transparent conductors. IDTechEx caught up with Rob Stone, Vice President of Corporate Development and Communications, to learn more about the company and especially its rolling mask lithography (RML) technology.

Robust Artificial Tissue Mimics Lobster Underbelly's Stretch

Researchers have fabricated a hydrogel-based material that mimics the structure of the lobster's underbelly. The researchers ran the material through a battery of stretch and impact tests, and showed that, similar to the lobster underbelly, the synthetic material is remarkably "fatigue-resistant," able to withstand repeated stretches and strains without tearing.
