Korean scientists develop electronic skin for telemedicine

Korean scientists have developed an “electronic skin” that can be connected to a smartphone and work wirelessly for the first time in the world. If it is put on a skin, it can monitor various biometric information 24/7, enabling telemedicine.  A robotic engineering team led by Professor Jang Kyung-in of the Daegu and Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology (DGIST) has successfully developed a wireless artificial electronic skin with the U.S. team led by Professor John Rogers of Illinois University.  Read more here .
