For the Swarovski use case the overall electronics stack has been defined in detail, including the first approaches for integration processes. The Smart Wellbeing Patch structure includes:

  • Functional Decorative Layer, incl.:
    • Swarovski Functional Crystals (e.g. energy-harvesting crystals, touch-conductive crystals)
    • LED display layer
    • Perovskite Printed Solar Cell (PSC),
  • Electronics Layer (incl. for instance MUSEIC chip from IMEC + temperature, humidity and UV sensor),
  • Printed PVDF haptics element,
  • Skin-Adhesion Layer.
