South Korea's research team has developed an electronic skin that breathes, yonhap reported on 
July 19. Breathable, perspiration is a thin electronic loop that can be attached to the surface of the 
body like a sticker.

The new material science team is working with the university of Tokyo, Japan, to be able to stick it
 on the skin for about a week, and the skin won't become inflamed. Its surface is attached to touch,
 temperature and electromyography sensors and can also measure body temperature and 
heartbeat. With the development of portable electronic products, there are also increasing 
research on health monitoring devices, which can be used in health monitoring devices.
The "breath electronic skin" is made of polyvinyl alcohol, a polymer material that is soluble in 
water and coated with gold particles on its surface, and woven into a net with fibers of 300 to 
700mm in diameter. It has a good scalability and can be used directly with water on the finger or 
joint, without adhesives, and can be used over and over again.
The electronic skin that has been studied so far is made of plastic or rubber, and is prone to 
inflammation if it is attached to the skin or body. In particular, prolonged exposure to the skin, 
coupled with air isolation, can cause itching or eczema. To overcome these shortcomings, the 
research team developed a network of breathable, perspiring "breathing electronic skin".
The research team professor said the study will link electronic skin and intelligent products to 
long-term health monitoring. The findings were published in the international journal Nature 
Nanotechnology on March 18.
