Graphene-based Transparent Electrodes for OLED Panels

Posted April 30, 2017 12:00 AM by Engineering360 eNewsletter

Graphene is being researched to be used to cool electronic chips, to develop extremely sensitive sensors, foldable pressure sensors, flexible antennas, and as the basis of the next-generation of transistors. Now, a team of researchers are using graphene to enable the next-generation of organic light emitting diode panels.

The Latest in Back-to-School Fashion?

Posted August 31, 2016 12:00 AM by Engineering360 eNewsletter

Smart kids (and adults, too!) may just be sporting "smart" clothes — if not this September, then soon. Researchers predict the smart clothing market, deemed the "next generation of wearables," will top 18 million clothing articles annually by 2021.
Some of the most practical? A jacket will incorporate sensor grids on the sleeve that allow wearers to control certain smartphone apps, and safety clothing will integrate LED lighting that looks like a runner or bicyclist. Technology on the horizon includes cost-efficient sensors printed directly on textiles. Transparent, flexible, and as thin as human hair, the sensors would permit more freedom in smart garment design.

A Display in the Palm of Your Hand

Posted June 28, 2016 12:00 AM by Engineering360 eNewsletter

Did you ever write someone's phone number on your hand? The newest smart device interface could take you back to those simpler times. It uses the top of the user's hand as a touch screen interface and the palm as a display. SkinHaptics, developed in a University of Sussex-led study, creates tactile sensations on the palm with ultrasound sent through the hand without interrupting the display. It also serves as a touch-only interface when the user doesn't need to see the display. For instance, someone riding a bicycle could adjust the music volume on a smartwatch without looking with one touch to their hand.
