  • 1. BIODEGRADABLE IMPLANTS
    Researcher John Rogers is developing sensors that can be inserted into the skull after brain surgery to monitor pressure and temperature.
    The devices would naturally dissolve over time, and could one day replace other implants, such as temporary pacemakers.
  • 2. NEUROSCIENCE RESEARCH
    Neuroscientists hope to use another of Rogers’s creations, an under-the-scalp device with LED lights, to study brain circuits.
    By controlling the lights and observing the brain’s reaction, they may better understand certain diseases and psychiatric disorders.
  • 3. GAMING AND LIVE EVENTS
    Startup MC10 is exploring ways to implement the technology at places like amusement parks, concerts, and sports events. It’s also interested in how skin-worn sensors could enhance gaming by enabling consoles to read biometric data and react in real time.
  • 4. SOLAR PANELS
    At the University of California, San Diego, researcher Darren Lipomi is working on stretchable solar cells 
    made from organic materials. They could be used to print cheaper, longer-lasting solar panels—or to create self-charging wearables.
  • 5. ARTIFICIAL SKIN
    Organic materials could also one day be fashioned into electronic­ skin that can sense temperature and touch, says Lipomi.
    While such an application is decades away from reality, it could eventually replace painful skin grafts for amputees and burn victims.
