Beyond transparent tattoos that take the form of the skin, the latest is the e-skin frenzy that is taking science to the next level.
Electronic skin or e-skin is a thin, translucent material that can replicate the functions and mechanical properties of human skin. As more and more hardcore evidence keeps appearing every other day on the uses of this e-skin in the medical, scientific and engineering domain, different types and sizes of wearable e-skins are produced and marketed.
The new e-skin is multifunctional:
The e-skin has been designed to mimic our natural skin. For instance, the era where robots will take care of babies is not a distant dream but a nearby reality. In this case, we would love to incorporate the e-skin on the robot fingers that can feel the pressure of the baby. The baby would have the feeling that he/she is carried by his/her loved ones.
Recycling the skin is not much of a difficult task and all you have to do is soak the device in recycling solution to degrade polymers into oligomers and monomers that are soluble in ethanol. This makes the silver nanoparticles sink to the bottom of the solution. These nanoparticles and the recycled skin can then be used to make new, functional e-skin.
What Makes this E-skin Extra Special?
AVOID FRAUD. EAT SMART.
