Elastic Electric Cables

Just as certain as we still have to rely on cables to power up (or recharge) our devices - at least until wireless energy transmission becomes mainstream - there are lots other things one just assumes to be as it is: electric cables, for power and/or data, can be  more or less rigid... but one thing that's for sure is that they don't stretch!... Or can they?

We're not talking about that coiled headphone or phone cables that can "stretch"; we're talking about really stretchable electric cables.

It's no secret how these elastic power cables can be used in... well... mostly everywhere! Its developers created it with a stretch factor of 1.5, similar to the human skin, making it ideal to be used in "wearable" computing devices, as well as body sensors, and also for robotic applications.

Check the following video... and get ready to see what no other electric cable could do before.
