Top Five Innovative Printed/Flexible Sensor Technologies

Printed/flexible sensors offer multiple benefits relative to their more established rigid counterparts, including lower weight, flexibility/conformality, and potentially lower manufacturing costs since printing facilitates high-throughput continuous production methods.

Control electronics with your eyes with this Raspberry Hypervisor

The wearable device tracks the user's eye movements and pupil position to move a mouse cursor around on a device. People who cannot use their hands with full efficiency may find it extremely difficult to interact with touchscreen devices. So as to determine where you are looking, one of the IR CSI cameras feeds a continuous video stream to the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3+ running OpenCV (which is a library focused on real-time-computer-vision).
