Taiwanese researchers have developed a technique to integrate different sensors on a single chip, making it smaller and more energy-efficient than the chips currently used in wearable devices.

The National Applied Research Laboratories unveiled the technique Tuesday, saying it allows for the inclusion of three major categories of sensors on one chip.

One type of sensors registers temperature, humidity, pressure and other weather data, while another measures the user’s heartbeat, blood pressure, blood sugar, and the third type records the user’s speed of movement and other physical factors.     [FULL  STORY]
