  • Using ingredients from peelable face masks and eggshells, researchers were able to print sensors onto skin at room temperature.
  • It’s an ultrathin layer of metal patterns that can bend and fold without losing electromechanical capabilities.
  • The sensors can precisely and continuously capture temperature, humidity, blood oxygen levels, and heart performance signals.
  • It can be easily removed with a hot shower, and it can be reused.
  • Next, the sensors will be tweaked for monitoring specific symptoms of diseases like COVID.
