The University of Illinois professor ran through a series of recent results in the world's most respected scientific journals — Science, Nature, PNAS to name just a few — showing that a future of biocompatible electronics may be closer than you think. And c'mon... how many of you knew that silicon was water soluble? Rogers is a YouTube sensation. But this is DAC, after all, so in lieu of a video I thought it more fitting to include the chemical equation from one of his slides.
As exciting as Rogers was, the best quote from the podium didn’t come from him but rather the smart tattoo he had pasted to his arm. Rogers rolled up his sleeve, placed his phone on his arm and waited a beat. Then the audio came through: “Hello... I'm a data tattoo... It is great to be at the DAC conference today...”
John, it was great to have you here as well!
