Researchers create thread that senses and tracks movement

February 8th, 2021

Scanning electron microscopy of threads coated with electrically conducting carbon-based ink.  Bending the coated threads creates strain, which changes their electrical conductivity (normal thread left, bent thread right. Scale bar 200 microns).
