A CNN report about electronic skin technologies points to the work of Anke Loh, Associate Professor and Sage Foundation Chair in the Department of Fashion, as an example of the expanding reach of research into stretchable circuitry. Loh’s interactive LED jewelry, the result of a collaboration with Fraunhofer IZM in Berlin, responds to the wearer’s changing movements, converting the kinetic energy into light.
