Northwestern engineer John Rogers has elevated his cutting edge invention, a “Lab on the Skin,” to a rare level of cultural prominence as part of a new exhibit in New York's Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). In addition to multiple versions of the device itself, the exhibit includes an animated video (above) from Northwestern to illustrate the technology and showcase potential future applications.
"Items: Is Fashion Modern?" opened Oct. 1 to critical acclaim where the exhibit is exploring the past, present and future of garments and accessories that have impacted society and culture over the last century.
The exhibit highlights the intersection of fashion and functionality, design and technology and science and art, providing Rogers a rare showcase for first-of-its-kind wearable that measures sweat for precision chemical analysis. Read more about Rogers' "Lab on the Skin" at MoMA.
