A hair-thin electronic patch that adheres to the skin like a temporary tattoo could transform medical sensing, computer gaming and even spy operations, according to a US study published Thursday.
The micro-electronics technology, called an epidermal electronic system (EES), was developed by an international team of researchers from the United States, China and Singapore, and is described in the journal Science.
"It's a technology that blurs the distinction between electronics and biology," said co-author John Rogers, a professor in materials science and engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
"Our goal was to develop an electronic technology that could integrate with the skin in a way that is mechanically and physiologically invisible to the user."
The patch could be used instead of bulky electrodes to monitor brain, heart and muscle tissue activity and when placed on the throat it allowed users to operate a voice-activated video game with better than 90 percent accuracy.
"This type of device might provide utility for those who suffer from certain diseases of the larynx," said Rogers. "It could also form the basis of a sub-vocal communication capability, suitable for covert or other uses."
The wireless device is nearly weightless and requires so little power it can fuel itself with miniature solar collectors or by picking up stray or transmitted electromagnetic radiation, the study said.
Less than 50-microns thick -- slightly thinner than a human hair -- the devices are able to adhere to the skin without glue or sticky material.
"Forces called van der Waals interactions dominate the adhesion at the molecular level, so the electronic tattoos adhere to the skin without any glues and stay in place for hours," said the study.
Northwestern University engineer Yonggang Huang said the patch was "as soft as the human skin."

I did a title search but came up empty.
Satan will NEVER come knocking on your door (unless otherwise invited) dressed as itself.
So the 666 will be invisable?
I hope you’re kidding.
Rev 13:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
Rev 13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Rev 13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number [is] Six hundred threescore [and] six.
I will die at their hands before they mark me with the beast.
Cool? Did you forget your sarc tag?
If you can post to Facebook or tweet from it, we're getting to the middle of the end. The end will be brain implants where we post our lives on the internet.
Remember when they used to be villans?
He says nothing about “brain implants”....just the tattoo on one’s right hand or forehead.
LOL! Looks like a .44 magnum cartridge glued on near the top of Piccard’s “implant”...
16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or[a] the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.
uh-h-h...can anyone say “mark of the beast”..?
All of the study I’ve been involved with from various sources, and according to the Bible is that it will be clearly visible who has the mark and who doesn’t.
I wasn’t answering in a Biblical way, just a Stalinist/Orwellian kind of way. I do know people who would probably install a Facebook brain implant if they were available. Just as something didn’t happen if it wasn’t on the news, their life doesn’t have meaning if it isn’t posted on the internet.
Sadly it won't be used for those purposes rather it would be used for rather nefarious deeds. So I would say F That!
Yep, very cool, regardless of what some neo-luddites and end-timers think.
It is amazing the insights into science and medicine that God has given us.
They are saying that in less than a decade, I may be able to replace my missing kidney with one grown from my own stem cells. They already do that with bladders.
Is it just me but doesn’t this look like an electronic version of numbers that were tattooed on Jews during the holocaust?
In Hebrew W=6
Finally, Satan and his minions have the technology to mark someone’s right hand or forehead. /s
BTW, if this is the mark of the beast, does that mean I can finally get that RFID chip implanted, without feeling guilty that I’m doing the work of the devil?
Actually I wanted to mark it for later reading and wanted to say something besides “bump.”
Not saying this one is the mark of the beast....but most certainly a large step in that direction.
Sad that the kids nowadays will think any tat is cool.
I actually invented the Freep acronym “BFLR”.
Agree. Technology is just human beings using the tools God gave them.
