23_26i/2011Stretchable Electronics: Stretchable Inorganic-Semiconductor Electronic Systems (Adv. Mater. 26/2011)

A light-emitting-diode array wrapped around the human thumb illuminates how electronics in the future will be stretchable and conformable rather than rigid and brittle. In the article on page 2933, Kevin Dowling, William J. Arora, and co-workers show how to integrate commercially available inorganic electronics with low-modulus rubber substrates to make electronics of the future more compatible with the human body and the world that we live in.
