If you have ever had your blood drawn, whether to check your cholesterol, kidney function, hormone levels, blood sugar, or as part of a general checkup, you might have wondered why there is not an easier, less painful way.

New Wearable Sensor Detects Even More Compounds in Human Sweat

The device senses and wirelessly transmits signals related to pulse, sweat, and ultraviolet exposure, without bulky chips or batteries.

Engineers fabricate a chip-free, wireless electronic "skin"

The sophisticated artificial skin sweats where and how much the researchers want it to. This was reported in an Angewandte Chemie article by Danqing Liu and first author Yuanyuan Zhan.

Artificial skin sweats on command

Penn State-led researchers develop first artificial skin to maintain cognitive characteristics when deformed.

Rubbery camouflage skin exhibits smart and stretchy behaviors

A new artificial skin developed at Caltech can now give robots the ability to sense temperature, pressure, and even toxic chemicals through a simple touch.

Artificial Skin Gives Robots Sense of Touch and Beyond

Robot arms could become safer in industrial settings by applying an artificial skin containing proximity heat sensors to detect humans in all directions.

New printing method for artificial "skin" containing heat sensors

In this episode, we talk about how a group of researchers were inspired by the adaptive immune system found in humans to fortify vulnerable neural networks and a joint effort between universities to create electric skin with unmatched performance.

Podcast: Immune System Inspired AI & Electric Skin

Using a highly-scalable approach to creating dense sensor networks, yet requiring only a pair of address lines, these researchers have taken inspiration from the human somatosensory system for a rapid-response sensitive sense of electronic touch.

A spectrum of spikes allows this novel electronic skin to sense touch like we do

Demonstrated by researchers in Hong Kong, this closed-loop human-machine interface (CL-HMI) system lets you take control of a robot via Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, or the Internet — and to feel what it feels.

Skin-integrated electronics usher in a new age of human-machine interface for robotic virtual reality

Engineers show how to print dense transistor arrays on skin-like materials to create stretchable circuits that flex with the body to perform applications yet to be imagined.

Engineers develop a practical way to make artificial skin

The design could lead to conformable wearable monitors to track skin cancer and other conditions.

Sweat-proof "smart skin" takes reliable vitals, even during workouts and spicy meals

From microwave ovens to Wi-Fi connections, the radio waves that permeate the environment are not just signals of energy consumed but are also sources of energy themselves.

Researchers harvest energy from radio waves to power wearable devices

Researchers in Carnegie Mellon University’s Soft Machines Lab have developed a new silver-hydrogel composite for artificial skin that combines high electrical conductivity with soft, stretchable biocompatibility.

A touch of silver

EPFL engineers, working in association with startup Xsensio, have developed a wearable sensing chip that can measure the concentration of cortisol – the stress hormone – in human sweat.
