Swiss scientists at ETH Zurich, a university focused on technology and natural sciences, have developed an ultra-flexible and transparent electronic circuit that could be used in the production of smart contact lenses.

To create the circuit, a substance called parylene is deposited onto vinyl polymer, which acts as a support system; then circuitry is printed onto the parylene. The entire chip is then submerged into water, which dissolves the polymer and leaves the circuit behind, according to Smithsonian magazine. Read more…
