Electronic learning or e-learning technology with its abbreviated name has started to appear mainly in medicine in recent years. However, this technology is still under development and is already facing some problems. However, a new study may present significant opportunities for electronic learning as the technology of the future.
Electronic leather becomes more flexible and durable
There are two problems with e-leather devices currently in use. These skins cause damage to the circuits because they are too flexible, or they don’t stretch enough because they use more durable circuits. This is the biggest obstacle to the use of e-learning in wearable technology devices, at least for now.
However, Yichen Cai and his team from King Abdullah University appear to have developed a new electronic skin. This new device comes with a hydrogel layer reinforced with strong and flexible silica nanoparticles. Titanium carbide MXene is used for the skin’s detection layer and this allows for a much more durable e-skin structure.
Because the hydrogel is 70 percent water, it becomes more compatible with human skin. This new flexible structure can keep its structure even after expansions up to 28 times in experiments.
During tests, this new discovery, which continued to work well even after 5000 deformations, was recovered in about a quarter of a second after each test.
The prototype of the e-skin has interesting features, such as detecting objects from a distance of 20 centimeters, responding to stimuli in less than a tenth of a second and being able to distinguish handwriting when used as a pressure sensor.
Electronic leather, which opens up new possibilities in the field of wearable technology, seems to have overcome sustainability problems with this new research. Do you think e-learning-based devices, seen as the technology of the future, can replace the smart clock? We await your comments.
