Japanese researchers are testing the electronic skin called e-skin, which later could be used to keep track of the biomedical data. In an article published in the journal Science Advances, a team of researchers from the University of Tokyo said that the layer of "ultra thin, ultra resilient" which are being developed by them will allow the functions such as blood oxygen levels and heart rate displayed electronically through light emitting diodes mounted on the e-skin.

"The advent of mobile phones has changed the way we communicate. While these communication tools are getting smaller and smaller, they are still discreet devices that we have to carry with us," said Takao Someya of the University of Tokyo's Graduate School of Engineering. "What would the world be like if we had displays that could adhere to our bodies and even show our emotions or level of stress or unease? In addition to not having to carry a device with us at all times, they might enhance the way we interact with those around us or add a whole new dimension to how we communicate.".
