Sweat-Monitoring Underwear, Enough Said

Posted on June 21, 2010
Category:

A group of nanoengineers at University of California in San Diego thought it would be a great idea to put chemical sensors on your underwear. This was achieved by printing the sensors directly onto elastic underwear waistbands, which can withstand being stretched, folded, and pulled.

What is the main objective here? The engineers plan on incorporating this amazing technology into logic-based biocomputing systems, monitoring sweat and tears to autonomously diagnose or administer drugs. This becomes very helpful in diagnosing injuries suffered during battle or sudden changes in a patient’s health status. As it turns out, a person’s nether region is a great source of sweat.

How these “smart” underwear can withstand detergent? We have yet to know.
