It seems we’re getting closer than ever to making flexible electronics a reality. A new technique of creating incredibly thin flexible devices has been developed by two Stanford researchers, solving an engineering problem that has prevented advances in this field of study. The process involves transferring semiconductors from silicon to polyimide, a flexible plastic, resulting in an electronic device 10 times thinner than a human hair that can be worn or implanted in the body.

Growing stronger and losing weight without putting in the effort seems like a fairytale, right? Electrical muscle stimulation might make the dream come true. During EMS, a full-body suit sends out electric charges that stimulate your muscles as if you’ve actually worked out. Older people, in particular, are reaping the benefits. Since they can’t do traditional strength training anymore, EMS is a viable alternative that keeps them healthy and strong. Some evidence suggests that the benefits go beyond strength training; EMS seems to promote cell growth and slow down the ageing process! Read full article here
