Our body is radiating data about ourselves continuously and individually. Wearable devices that can pick up and transmit signals from the human body have the potential to transform mobile health (mHealth) and human-machine interface (HMI). Recent advancements in flexible and stretchable electronics have provided viable solutions to the intimate integration of electronics with bio-systems. Among many breakthroughs, epidermal electronic systems (EES) represents a paradigm-shift wearable device whose thickness and mechanical properties can match that of human epidermis. We demonstrate the use of low cost, disposable ESS to noninvasively but accurately measure electrophysiological signals, skin temperature, skin hydration, as well as respiratory rate.
