A highly sensitive graphene woven fabric strain sensor for wearable wireless musical instruments

Author affiliations

Abstract

Highly flexible and sensitive strain sensors are essential components of wearable electronic devices. Herein, we present a novel graphene woven fabric (GWF)/polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) composite as a highly flexible, sensitive strain sensor capable of detecting feeble human motions with an extremely high piezoresistive gauge factor of 223 at a strain of 3% and excellent durability. A wireless wearable musical instrument prototype made of the composite sensor demonstrates conversion of human motions to music of different instruments and sounds.
