A team of Belgian researchers reports what may be the first optical circuit that uses interconnections that are not only bendable, but also stretchable. These new interconnections, made of a rubbery transparent material called poly-dimethylsiloxane (PDMS), guide light along their path even when stretched up to 30% and when bent around an object the diameter of a human finger.
