Highlighted research relevant to wearables at Stanford University

Direct measurement of swimming and diving kinematics of giant Atlantic bluefin tuna

Prof. Barbara Block et al use data-logging tags on tuna to determine that versatility of swimming gaits and diving behaviors reduce unnecessary energy expenditure and help to regulate body temperature.

Modular and reconfigurable stretchable electronic systems

Prof. Zhenan Bao et al demonstrate novel applications of tough, self-healing elastomer to realize skin-like modular electronics systems, in which multiple electronic components are electrically interconnected, can be reconfigured, and can communicate with each other digitally.
