A hair-thin electronic patch that adheres to the skin like a temporary tattoo could transform medical sensing, computer gaming [2] and even spy operations, according to a US study published Thursday.

The micro-electronics technology, called an epidermal electronic system (EES), was developed by an international team of researchers from the United States, China and Singapore, and is described in the journal Science.

“It’s a technology that blurs the distinction between electronics and biology,” said co-author John Rogers, [3] a professor in materials science and engineering at the University of Illinois [4] at Urbana-Champaign.
