The University of Colorado Boulder researchers have described an “electronic skin” that can heal itself.

It also reliably performs a range of sensory tasks like measuring the body temperature of users or tracking their daily step counts.

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.”

According to EurekaAlert, The team, led by Jianliang Xiao and Wei Zhang, describes its new “electronic skin” in a paper published today in the journal Science Advances.
