[The Hankyoreh, October 8 2007] S. Korean, U.S. engineers develop low-voltage flexible transistor

South Korean and U.S. engineers said Monday they have developed a low-voltage flexible transistor that could be used to make wristwatch mobile phones and computers that can be worn like clothes.

Transistors, which amplify electric signals, are key components of semiconductors. The manufacturing of flexible transistors has been an important goal of engineers for the past several years, the Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) said.
