The seamless and adaptive interactions between functional devices and their environment (e.g., the human body) are critical for advancing emerging technologies, e.g., wearable devices and human-machine teaming. I will discuss our recent progress in developing human-integrated sensors through the hybrid nanomanufacturing of heterostructured devices based on versatile nanomaterials (e.g., 2D semiconductors, biomass-derived materials, etc.). This new class of wearable devices is conformable to skins and can sustainably perform non-invasive monitoring of a broad spectrum of signals from the human body (e.g., mechanical, chemical, etc.). This research could have a positive impact and immediate relevance to many societally pervasive areas, e.g., telehealth, consumer electronics, and robotics.
