Summary

Studies have actively focused on the development of large-area electronics, including paper-like flexible displays, sensors, and actuators in order to realize next-generation human–machine interfaces that can be used in daily life. One of the most interesting challenges in this regard is the simultaneous achievement of high electronics performance and high mechanical durability. Furthermore, large-area yet cost-effective manufacturing processes and materials are required. Herein, we describe the fabrication and the electrical and mechanical performances of a truly rubber-like stretchable active matrix combining printed organic transistors and mechanically stretchable electrical wirings.
