Professor John A. Rogers demonstrates a new type of electronics; made of silk, magnesium, and silicon, these electronics completely and harmlessly dissolve in water. The potential applications of this new technology are endless - from implantable medical devices to environmentally friendly electronic devices.

Science of Innovation — Electronic Tattoo

Professors John Rogers and Yonggang Huang have collaborated to design and engineer an electronic tattoo, a microelectronic health monitor that adheres to the surface of human skin. Their work is an example of how collaboration is often a key part of the innovation process. "Science of Innovation" is produced in partnership with the National Science Foundation and the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
