It is difficult to connect a milk carton, a golf club or a blood bag to the Internet. What is the common factor between such objects, as far as equipping them with sensors is concerned? How about human skin? Is the location of a wearable device for health monitoring limited by user comfort due to bulky batteries? The presentation will give answers to such questions, and describe some inspiring applications, which are benefiting from thin and flexible batteries designed and developed by Enfucell.
