Wearable technology is often touted as one of the greatest applications of the Internet of Things, and with good reason. Wearable electronics that consumers can display on their bodies have the potential to transform the way we live. Devices from Fitbit and its peer companies allow people to track their health and exercise progress in previously impossible ways. And smartwatches bring the power of smartphones directly to the wearer’s wrist. But IoT devices didn’t just crop up out of nowhere. This wearable technology can trace its roots back further than you might think, and the road ahead for wearable devices looks bright.

09. September 2016 · Comments Off on “Neural Dust” Sensors Could Lead to Implantable Wearables · Categories: News · Tags: , , , ,

“Neural dust” is a term used to describe tiny sensors designed by the EECS department of UC Berkeley. In a paper released this month, Berkeley researchers revealed that they’ve recorded the first in-vivo readings from implanted dust.This research is a long time coming. In 2013, the team published research detailing their research on their use of ultrasound with CMOS circuitry. In 2015, they released another paper that further focused on theory, modeling, and scaling.The resultant prototype in this most recent announcement is a step towards sensors that can be safely implanted in the brain. It’s also a step towards a future where wearable technology could be implanted directly inside the body.
