Sensor stickers transform the human body into a multi-touch surface

They are similar to ultra-thin patches, their shape can be freely chosen, and they work anywhere on the body. With such sensors on the skin, mobile devices like smartphones and smartwatches can be operated more intuitively and discreetly than ever before. Computer scientists at Saarland University have now developed sensors that even laypeople can produce with a little effort. The special feature: the sensors make it possible, for the first time, to capture touches on the body very precisesly, even from multiple fingers. The researchers have successfully tested their prototypes in four different applications.


From semitransparent solar cells to flexible OLEDs and to medical diagnostics

Devices from organic materials such as solar cells, organic light emitting diodes (OLED) and photodetectors have completely new properties in comparison with traditional silicon cells: mechanical flexibility, light weight, low costs, as well as semi-transparency. They could be used for solar cells as thin as foil, and so flexible that they can be integrated in large surfaces such as house or glass fronts. Applications such as wearable technologies, lighting elements or bio-sensor technology might also be possible. The partners of the German-Danish research project “RollFlex”, university and firms, will present the fabrication and function of this organic devices at the booth of Kiel University at the Hannover Messe (hall 2, C02).
