@kdawson, im right there with you! and i'm sure my kids would say that they are tired of me stalking them over the sunscreen issue but i'm not convinced they'd react better to a message from their skin!

cosmetic stickers that can alert you by phone when it is time to reapply sunscreen

Hmm, I've already got Starbucks and Apple sending me random SMS messages. Not sure I want to add my skin to that list.

@Iconoclast, welcome to the discussion and thanks for the link. Do you have experience with designing with these types of circuits? What's the next step in innovation for these do you think?

"We are all aware of how important stretching is before and after exercising, but who would have thought that stretching would ever be important to electronics?"

Nichole, out body is stretchable because of the elastic property of the skin and muscles. But that may not be the case with electronic devices and components; they are solid devices which won't have any elastic property.

Prabhakar, 

Anything you do with your imagination is always a good thing. :D

I like your ideas for the strechable electronics' applications. They are both useful. They certainly could find a good place in the market. The scarf could be useful especially for those patients who need to monitor their BP daily.

It could be wirelessly connected to a central where a nurse could be notified in case of the BP going to high. The patient could receive immediate attention. (or I am dreaming too much here?) 

The socks could be useful in sports, or anyone who would like to keep track of the distance in their daily walks. 

Great ideas, Prabhakar. :) 

-Susan
