No, they’re not, but electronics are starting to become quite stretchy. Researchers at the University of Michigan have discovered that nanoparticles and elastic components can be combined to make conductors that stretch.

This means bendable displays, batteries, medical implants that move with the body instead of pressing up against it, and much more. This could actually lead to the creation of paper thin displays and multimedia magazines and newspapers you can hold in your hands!

Of course, we’re still a long ways from that.
