UC San Diego Nanoengineer Named Among MIT Technology Review’s Top Innovators Under 35

July 2, 2018

MIT Technology Review has named Sheng Xu, a professor of nanoengineering at the University of California San Diego, as one of this year’s top innovators under 35. Xu is being recognized for inventing a clever way to make off-the-shelf electronics stretchable.

New Chip for Waking Up Small Wireless Devices Could Extend Battery Life

November 12, 2019

A new power saving chip could significantly reduce or eliminate the need to replace batteries in Internet of Things (IoT) devices and wearables. The so-called wake-up receiver wakes up a device only when it needs to communicate and perform its function, saving on power use.

Calling All Couch Potatoes: This Finger Wrap Can Let You Power Electronics While You Sleep

July 13, 2021

A new wearable device turns the sweat and press of a fingertip into a source of power for small electronics and sensors. This sweat-fueled device is the first to generate power even while the wearer is asleep—no exercise or movement required.

Using Personal Data to Predict Blood Pressure

October 4, 2018

Engineers at UC San Diego used wearable off-the-shelf technology and machine learning to predict an individual’s blood pressure and provide personalized recommendations to lower it based on this data.

‘Wearable Microgrid’ Uses the Human Body to Sustainably Power Small Gadgets

March 9, 2021

This shirt harvests and stores energy from the human body to power small electronics. UC San Diego nanoengineers call it a “wearable microgrid”—it combines energy from the wearer’s sweat and movement to provide renewable power for wearable devices.

New Chip Brings Ultra-Low Power WiFi Connectivity to IoT Devices

February 17, 2020

More portable, fully wireless smart home setups. Lower power wearables. Batteryless smart devices. These could all be made possible thanks to a new ultra-low power WiFi radio developed by UC San Diego engineers. It enables WiFi communication at 5,000 times less power than commercial WiFi radios.

Wearable Ultrasound Patch Enables Continuous, Non-Invasive Monitoring of Cerebral Blood Flow

May 22, 2024

Engineers at the University of California San Diego have developed a wearable ultrasound patch that can offer continuous, non-invasive monitoring of blood flow in the brain. The soft and stretchy patch can be comfortably worn on the temple to provide three-dimensional data on cerebral blood flow—a first in wearable technology.

A smart ring shows it’s possible to detect fever before you feel it

December 14, 2020

Temperature data collected by wearable devices worn on the finger can be reliably used to detect the onset of fevers, a leading symptom of both COVID-19 and the flu, according to a team of researchers from the University of California San Diego, UC San Francisco and MIT Lincoln Lab.

‘Near-zero-power’ Temperature Sensor Could Make Wearables, Smart Home Devices Less Power-hungry

June 30, 2017

…“near-zero-power” temperature sensor could extend the battery life of wearable or implantable devices that monitor body temperature, smart home monitoring systems, Internet of Things devices and environmental monitoring systems.

Engineers Develop New Magnetic Ink to Print Self-Healing Devices That Heal in Record Time

November 2, 2016

…batteries, electrochemical sensors and wearable, textile-based electrical circuits. The key ingredient for the ink is microparticles oriented in a certain configuration by a magnetic field. Because of the way they’re oriented, particles on both sides of a tear are magnetically attracted to one another, causing a device printed with the…
