Electronic tatoos
« on: October 04, 2019, 06:28:34 pm »

The headline reads "..... and the battlefield", the mind boggles, think what else they could be used for.

The scientists developed an ink laced with silver nanowires that can be printed directly onto skin at low temperatures using an aerosol printer. The thin film is dry in less than two minutes and works even after being bent more than a thousand times.
As well as “biological tagging” Professor Aaron Franklin, one of the researchers, said the tattoos could be used for “unique detection mechanisms,” “on-the-fly custom electronics,” and “customized bandages.”
“Think about creating bespoke bandages that contain electronics like biosensors, where a nurse could just walk over to a workstation and punch in what features were needed for a specific patient,” Franklin said. “This is the type of print-on-demand capability that could help drive that.”

Is this new?  I think I remember reading of something similar years ago.
