Researchers at Columbia Engineering and the Fashion Institute of Technology team up to create a non-toxic bioleather, inspired by the power of microbes and indigenous science.

Compostable Bioleather Offers Sustainable Solutions for the Clothing Industry and Beyond

Sometimes manufacturers would like to install heating in objects that are difficult to heat. The armrest of your car. Your sporty winter coat. Bags for food delivery. Sleeping bags. etc This has been difficult to achieve until now. Read more about printed heater technology

The advantages and functioning of PTC heaters

Wearable electronic textiles are a demanding environment for reliable interconnects – the ability to function with movement and survive multiple cleanings and reuse. Good adhesion is particularly challenging in these wearable and conformable electronics applications. While solders provide the most conductive electrical connection, they are rigid and require not only the addition of an underfill adhesive but usually a post bond encapsulation. This Anisotropic Conductive Epoxy, provides reliable interconnections between electronic components and circuitry on textiles with excellent structural bonding, without encapsulation, even under repeated stretching and washings. This technology has been shown as a scalable assembly process for e-Textile manufacturing in an SMT line.

Reliable, Scalable, Anisotropic Interconnect Solution for Wearable Electronics

A team of researchers from Texas A&M University has developed a toe-tapping test for patients with Parkinson’s disease that gathers information from smart shoe insoles and transfers data to a simple phone application.

Flexible electronics have enabled the design of sensors, actuators, microfluidics and electronics on flexible, conformal and/or stretchable sublayers for wearable, implantable or ingestible applications.

Researchers design new inks for 3D-printable wearable bioelectronics

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"

Canadian researchers have discovered that they can stick hydrogel plasters to the skin very effectively using ultrasound. Outi Supponen has now explained the underlying mechanism: imploding bubbles that form within the adhesive located between the plaster and the skin anchor the one on the other.

Strong adhesion thanks to cavitation bubbles

In this episode, we talk about how researchers are developing a sticker that can conduct ultrasound tests along with a machine learning powered robotic solution for choosing chemical proteins when developing new drugs and biofuels or recycling plastics.
