University of Tokyo researchers have developed a micro-thin thermal sensor that can be applied directly on a person’s skin, which could be useful in monitoring the health of infants or even making sportswear more comfortable.

The research group said the device, embedded in ultra-fine film, can measure target temperatures between 25 and 50 degrees, a range that includes that of the human body.

The finding, made in collaboration with the University of Texas, was published this week in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America.
