New health trackers: sophisticated and barely-there

So Rogers has designed super-thin, barely-there electronics that can stretch, wrinkle and flex with the skin. Harvesting power from radio waves, they measure a wide range of health data beyond what current gadgets can monitor, from hydration levels to muscle fatigue. This information can then be uploaded to a smartphone, which alerts users if they're at risk of dehydration and even recommend how much water to drink, for example. Massachusetts-based startup MC10, which Rogers co-founded, released its first device with Reebok last year - a head impact indicator for contact sports called the CheckLight . A more advanced version should hit store shelves this year, along with a health tracker that you can stamp onto your skin.
