Wearable system to sense, stimulate brain at unprecedented resolution
A noninvasive neural interface that can be used as a wearable device. This neural interface will be capable of both recording and stimulating the brain's dynamic activity with high temporal and spatial resolution.
Blood and sweat take training app to the next level
By keeping check on the sweat the human body secretes, users can be warned about becoming dehydrated in good time before problems arise, so they can either stop exercising or drink to rehydrate their body.
Cooling and heating patch serves as personal thermostat
Engineers have developed a wearable patch that could provide personalized cooling and heating at home, work, or on the go.
Fusible and printable elastomer sensors for e-textiles
Integrating sensoric functions into textiles or elastomers is way more difficult than equipping machines because it requires movable or extensible sensors.
Washable, wearable battery-like devices woven directly into clothes
Washable, wearable 'batteries': based on cheap, safe and environmentally-friendly inks and woven directly into fabrics, have been developed.
World's first wearable kidney is the goal
The artificial wearable kidney would reduce the need for hospital visits and decrease health care costs because dialysis could take place during a patient's regular routine.
Get the complete picture on Stretchable and Flexible Electronics
IDTechEx is hosting Business Intelligence Forums in Boston, including both Stretchable Electronics and Flexible Electronics, providing you with the complete picture on these topics in a timely and cost-effective manner.
ABEĀTIS launches first ever color-changing apparel
The Abeātis UV Tech Hoodie is made from mirage fiber, a new type of intelligent textile developed by treating biomass fibers with a discoloration material that reacts to UV light by changing shade. When exposed to sunlight or UV rays, MIRAGE Fabric, known as "photochromic fabric" reveals prints, patterns, and changes color instantly.
NTT (New Textile Technologies)
IDTechEx interviewed Hans Bauer, Managing Director of NTT, at their booth at the IDTechEx Show in Berlin.
IDTechEx met with Melanie Hoerr, Manager of Technical Embroidery Applications at ZSK.
Wearable identifies subtle motor deficits in children
A wristwatch-like motion-tracking device can detect movement problems in children whose impairments may be overlooked by doctors and parents, according to a new study.
Keith LeBlanc joins FLEXcon North America as Director of Marketing
FLEXcon Company Inc announced that Keith LeBlanc will serve as the new Director of Marketing, FLEXcon North America.
IDTechEx caught up with Philip Kunovski, CTO & Head of Research at Kymira Ltd. at the Wearable Technology Show 2019.
Crumpled carbon nanotube forests to power wearables
For emerging wearable tech to advance, it needs improved power sources. Now researchers have provided a potential solution via crumpled carbon nanotube forests, or CNT forests.
Stand-alone contact lens with a flexible micro battery
Scientists are currently working together to design an oculometer embedded in a scleral contact lens. They have recently created the first autonomous contact lens incorporating a flexible micro-battery.
Soft, actuated objects using commercial knitting machines
Researchers have used computationally controlled knitting machines to create plush toys and other knitted objects that are actuated by tendons. It's an approach they say might someday be used to cost-effectively make soft robots and wearable technologies.
3D printer threads electronic fibers onto fabrics
The potential for wearable electronics goes far beyond smart watches, but our current options for battery packs and circuit boards don't make for the most comfortable E-socks. One solution, being developed is to simply print flexible fibers on to transitional textiles or clothes.
Air Force partnership advancing wearable sensor technology
Imagine being able to monitor your health quickly, simply, painlessly, and continuously, without complicated equipment or a doctor visit. For athletes or people with health conditions, an immediate physical "status update" would be a great convenience. For the warfighter in the field, it could be the crucial element of a successful mission.
Squid skin inspires creation of next-gen material
Drawing design inspiration from the skin of stealthy sea creatures, engineers have developed a next-generation, adaptive space blanket that gives users the ability to control their temperature.
