Electrical engineer Todd Coleman and his team at the University of California in San Diego are developing wireless, tattoo-like flexible electronics that a person can stick on the forehead to read brain activity.?




The devices have diameter of less than 100 microns, just like an average human hair. They consist of circuitry embedded in a layer of rubbery polyester which allow them to stretch, bend and wrinkle.

Coleman also mentioned that the sensors he and his team are working on can pick up eletrical signals of muscle movements in the throat when a person? thinks about talking - subvocalisation - so people can communicate with thought. Very Vulcan.

As far out as it sounds, Coleman did identify real world applications for this technology, such as medical monitoring for premature babies to detect the onset of seizures that can lead to epilepsy or brain development problems.
