Epidermal Systems and Virtual Reality: Emerging Disruptive Technology for Military Applications

Marsili, Marco

This brief study focuses on skin as sensory interface, and explores the latest discoveries in bioelectronic science. The work analyzes at what extent invisibility is possible by emulating nature, and if military applications can really benefit from technology that combines epidermal systems and virtual reality. The study shows that, to be effective, camouflage needs to match the environment — and to be disruptive. Adaptive and epidermal VR joint together can be a on the edge technology that might find effective military applications.

Extended abstract published in the Book of Abstracts - Proceedings of the 2nd World Conference on Advanced Materials for Defense, edited by Raul Fangueiro — ISBN: 978-989-54808-4-5. Full paper will be published in Key Engineering Materials.
