A stretchable array of commercially available inorganic light-emitting diodes (LEDs) shows no change in electrical properties under repeated tensile strains in excess of 100%. The array is built using a widely applicable fabrication process in which the LEDs can be substituted for other commercially available electronic components to build all types of stretchable electronic systems, thereby expanding the application space of electronics.
