‘Breathable’ Electronics Pave the Way for More Functional Wearable Tech

Engineering researchers have created ultrathin, stretchable electronic material that is gas permeable, allowing the material to “breathe.” The material was designed specifically for use in biomedical or wearable technologies, since the gas permeability allows sweat and volatile organic compounds to evaporate away from the skin, making it more comfortable for users – especially for long-term wear. The sleeve pictured here incorporates breathable electronic fabric making it both comfortable and able to function as a video game controller.
