Checking your blood pressure or monitoring your heart rate could one day be as simple as applying a temporary tattoo.
Researchers at the University of Tokyo have created a protective material for electronic skin displays that's less than 2 micrometers thick. That's the equivalent of two human red blood cells, stacked.
Electronic skin (e-skin) displays are exactly what they sound like: super-thin displays — likely with embedded medical sensors — placed right on the skin.
