This device uses micro-electronics technology called an epidermal electronic system (EES) and is said to be a development that will "transform" medical sensing technology, computer gaming and even spy operations, according to a study published last week. The hair-thin chip was developed by an international team of researchers from the United States, China and Singapore and is described in the Journal of Science.
