Tiny injectable sensor could provide unobtrusive alcohol monitoring

Tiny injectable sensor could provide unobtrusive alcohol monitoring

Top Story Engineers at the University of California, San Diego, have developed a miniature, ultra-low power, injectable biosensor that could be used for continuous, long-term alcohol monitoring. The chip is small enough to be implanted in the body just beneath the surface of the skin and is powered wirelessly by a wearable device, such as […]

Innovative material for soft sensor could bring new tactile tech

A new type of soft and stretchable sensor could find uses in applications ranging from athletics and health monitoring to prosthetics and virtual reality. Called iSoft, the technology is capable of sensing in real time, or without delay, and can perform “multimodal” sensing, or sensing a variety of stimuli such as continuous contact and stretching […]
