A study is conducted to demonstrate materials, mechanics designs and integration strategies for near field communication (NFC) enabled electronics with ultrathin construction, ultralow modulus, and ability to accommodate large strain deformation. These attributes allow seamless, conformal contact with the skin and simultaneous capabilities for wireless interfaces to any standard, NFC enabled smartphone, even under extreme deformations and after/during normal daily activities. Detailed experimental studies and theoretical modeling of the coupled mechanical and electromagnetic responses of these systems establish foundational understanding of their behavior.
