Stretchy hydrogel based multi-purpose ‘Band-Aid' with sensors

Few engineers from MIT have designed a multi-purpose Band-Aid which is made of a gel-like material. It comprises of miniature temperature sensors and LEDs with other electronic components as well as tiny, drug-delivering reservoirs and channels. The 'smart wound dressing' releases medicine in response to changes in skin temperature and can be designed to light up if, say, medicine is running low.
