Life-logging wrist bands, light-emitting textiles, intelligent ear pieces, insole sensors, electronic jewellery, multi-sensing gloves, electronic smart plasters are a few examples of devices falling under the category of “wearable technology”.

This talk will provide a short introduction to “wearables” and present some of the challenges associated with making body-conformable electronic devices. Flexible and stretchable electronics technologies – including printed electronics for low-cost fabrication – will be introduced and novel approaches for device assembly will be discussed.

Nokia’s recently published research work on flexible/stretchable electronics will be presented including a case study demonstrating a conformable multisensory device, which is fabricated using scalable printing and flex-on-flex integration methods.

This talk is part of the Wolfson College Science Society talks series.
