Toward Imperceptible Electronics That You Cannot See or Feel

Transparent electronics--such as head-up displays that allow pilots to read flight data while keeping their eyes ahead of them--improve safety and allow users to access data while in transit. For healthcare applications, the electronics need to not only be cheap and straightforward to fabricate, but also sufficiently flexible to conform to skin. Silver nanowire networks meet these criteria. However, current methods of development create random nanowire alignment that's insufficient for advanced applications.
