The stretchable device is slightly thicker than a Band-Aid and is recyclable. It can also be shaped to fit anywhere on your body.

Xiao, an associate professor in the Paul M. Rady Department of Mechanical Engineering at CU Boulder, said, “If you want to wear this like a watch, you can put it around your wrist. If you want to wear this like a necklace, you can put it on your neck.”
