Stretchy, Wearable Synaptic Transistor: Paving the Way for Smarter Robotics and Wearable Devices

Stretchy and wearable synaptic transistor makes robotics smarter

A team of Penn State Engineers has developed a wearable, stretchy synaptic transistor which could make robotics and wearable devices more intelligent. The team’s device works just like neurons in the human brain. It sends signals to certain cells while inhibiting others, enhancing and weakening the device’s memories.

Cunjiang Yu is Dorothy Quiggle Associate Professor and Career Development Associate of Engineering Science and Mechanics, and an associate professor in biomedical engineering and materials science and engineering.

Nature Electronics published the research.
