"As recently as ten years ago, epidermal electronics seemed unimaginable—but today, electronic systems that adhere to the surface of the skin are being tested for use in various applications, for example by medical research labs all over the world. The MAK FASHION Lab exhibition SCIENTIFIC SKIN provides a look at pioneering design developments that use new technologies to expand the cognitive characteristics of human skin and of textiles, the so-called second skin."
