Electronic systems today are based on standard printed circuit board processes. Rigid and unyielding, they directly serve the needs of traditional product fields like automotive, computing or industrial electronics. However, in light of new demands to commercialize technologies, standard circuits have become outdated. ‘Stretchable electronics’ have since taken its place, and gained widespread attention as the new, emerging class of electronics. Now, researchers at the National Centre for Nanoscience and Technology have created a printable, stretchable and biocompatible metal-polymer conductor that is part elastic polymer and part liquid metal. It was produced through screen printing and microfluidic patterning, such that liquid…
