Touch on Smart Clothing, Tacterion Sensor Skin

Posted by Charbax – May 2, 2016

Tacterion is a spin-off from the German aerospace center at the Robotics and Mechatronics Center to develop tacterion, a new kind of tactile sensor. Tacterion offers polymer-based tactile sensors called Artificial Skin for Robotics, MedTech or as a new kind of input device in Human-Machine-Interaction in Smart Clothing. The rubber foil-like Artificial Skin sensor is connected to Tacterion's readout electronic component that translates physical interaction into data which digital systems can process.

EMS shows MIMO Baby by Rest Devices, Wins Best Commercialization Award at the IDTechEx Show!

Posted by Charbax – February 18, 2016

Engineered Materials Systems won “Best Commercialization Award” at IDTechEx Printed Electronics USA. This award was given for the use of their stretchable conductive ink in the successful commercial product MIMO Baby, made by Rest Devices. Rest Devices developed breakthrough wearable technology that combined capacitive sensing, blue tooth transmission of real-time biological data, and a clever way to integrate chip and power. What they lacked was a conductive ink that would meet their requirements of soft, stretchable and durable. Engineered Materials Systems submitted their flagship silver conductive ink, CI-1036 which worked very well according to Rest Devices engineers and was a key enabler to commercialization of MIMO Baby. CI-1036 is applied to proprietary film and insulated with a proprietary top-coat. This combination is reported by Rest Devices to withstand 90 wash/dry cycles of the MIMO Baby kimono with the failure mode not due to the conductive circuitry. Engineered Materials Systems, Inc. (EMS, Inc). is a global manufacturer of conductive inks, insulators, conductive adhesives for the printed electronics market. EMS has developed a highly stretchable/ flexible conductive ink for wearable electronics. For more information see http://emsadhesives.com/ and http://www.IDTechEx.com
