Some of you will hopefully have followed the Netexplo Forum 2013, 14-15 February, where we look at the new technology trends the world over. I was able to catch up with a few of the prize winners. This first interview is with Dr Nanshu Lu, the Grand Winner of the Netexplo 2013 Awards. Her project, Electronic Tattoos, is absolutely stunning.  Among her many achievements, Nanshu was identified in 2012 as one of the world’s top 35 innovators under the age of 35 by Technology Review Magazine.  In this interview, Nanshu, who has a Ph.D from Harvard in Mechanics of Materials, describes what Electronic Tattoos are and some of the potential applications.
