Wearable battery for human body

Electronics are showing up everywhere: on our laps, in pockets and purses and, increasingly, snuggled up against our skin or sewed into our clothing. But the adoption of wearable electronics has so far been limited by their need to derive power from bulky, rigid batteries that reduce comfort and may present safety hazards due to Read more about Wearable battery for human body[…]

Microlattice material could save better sportives head injuries

HRL Laboratories, LLC, has published test results showing shock-absorbing pads made from HRL’s microlattice an architected elastomeric material had up to 27% more energy absorption efficiency than the current best-performing expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam when sustaining a single impact and up to 48% improved absorption efficiency over the state-of-the-art vinyl nitrile foam when impacted repeatedly.

Wearable touch sensor

Researchers from North Carolina State University have created elastic, touch-sensitive fibers that can interface with electronic devices. “Touch is a common way to interact with electronics using keyboards and touch screens,” says Michael Dickey, a professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering at NC State and corresponding author of a paper describing the work. “We have Read more about Wearable touch sensor[…]
