Description: This article shares new technologies developed for tissue engineering.

Summary: One of the biggest challenges to developing the next generation of bionics and brain-controlled prosthetics is getting electrical sensors onto the relevant parts of the brain without damaging it. Many of the electrodes used to record from the brain are rigid wires sometimes known as daggers, such as the ceramic electrodes (Figure 1) used for the recent report of a memory prosthetic

Excerpt: So, how are we going to make electrical recording surfaces that can truly mold to the tissue it records from? We need something flexible, yet durable - and something we can make in any shape or size. Enter Smart Flesh the flexible printed circuit made from silk that adheres and flexes with skin, muscle or brain. This remarkable development comes from the laboratory of Dr. John Rogers at the University of Illinois. It is hard to say exactly which capability Dr. Rogers first sought –- flexibility, conforming to the folds and wrinkles of the skin, brain (Figure 3) or any three-dimensional surface – or stretchability, the ability to expand and contract with the aforementioned skin, brain or any moving surface. However he set about developing these properties, the possibilities for novel electronics and sensing systems are exciting.
