Electronics You Can Wrap Around Your Finger

Written by Jason Socrates Bardi of the American Institute of Physics, the article describes how a new multiferroric film may change the wearable device industry. South Korean researchers are manufacturing the thin film that maintains its electric and magnetic properties even when highly curved, and the product design and development world is paying close attention.

Three key points we like from Electronics You Can Wrap Around Your Finger:

  • The team of physicists and engineers from South Korea applied the same approach researchers have been taking with silicon in flexible plastics, but they used bismuth ferrite (BiFeO3)
  • The researchers produced the thin, flexible film using a series of steps that resulted in improving the properties of bulk bismuth ferrite, and that the improved properties remained even when the film was curved into a cylindrical shape
  • The multiferroric materials could be used in new wearable devices for health monitoring equipment, virtual reality attire, and high-density, energy efficient memory and switches in those devices

As these smart, connected products result from improvements in processing power, device miniaturization, and wireless connectivity, competition is increasing as never before for product designers and developers.

Three key points we like from How Smart, Connected Products Are Transforming Competition:

  • As the nature of products changes, value chains are disrupted and companies must rethink and retool nearly all of their internal operations
  • As industry boundaries expand, companies must determine how to use and manage the new data, how to define relationships with channels, and how to make new strategic choices relating to how value is created and captured
