Strain-invariant stretchable radio-frequency electronics. (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/38778108/)

These scientists wanted to make electronic devices that can stretch and bend without losing their ability to send and receive signals wirelessly. They used a special material called 'dielectro-elastic' that can maintain the electronic properties even when the device is stretched. This material helps to prevent changes in the signal strength or efficiency when the device is moved or bent.

They tested this new material by making stretchable electronic components and found that they could still work well even when stretched. This means that the devices they made, like healthcare monitors that can be worn on the skin, can still communicate wirelessly even when they are being moved around a lot.

Overall, the scientists discovered a way to make electronic devices that can stretch and bend without losing their ability to send and receive signals wirelessly, which is very useful for making wearable technology that can be used in many different situations.
