Indium-Plastic Film Could Lead to Stretchier Skin for Robots

Able to stretch and bend significantly while still conducting electricity, this film could result in better skin for robots. (Photo credit: Washington State University.)

A novel film designed for flexible electronics can stretch to twice to size without breaking. Created by Rahul Panat and Indranath Dutta of Washington State University, the indium-plastic film could significantly advance robotic skins, bendable batteries, wearable monitoring devices and sensors, and connected fabrics. The tiny …
