This is not really nano-technology, just a neat trick in processing. The circuit is huge and an 800 nm thick film is hardly nano technology.

Colin, Thanks for the post. Rusability of nano-circuits is an interesting idea. Any idea when will we see the first product which will use this technology ?

Lot of buzz on nano, yet to see the effect. this will never end, until maybe we just stop writing about them. the promises are not yet.

Lots of applications exist for very simple and targeted sensors capable of adhering to any shape or object. Assuming the circuit performance is stable and repeatable in bulk then adding simple memory to it (for read back later), or perhaps a simple RF or NFC link would be all that you need to get commercially viable (and very cheap) sensor systems.

It's a nice new field, but once the substrate is not taken for granted, stress becomes a much more significant issue.

These researchers claim to be able to fabricate simple sensors and similar circuits that can be directly attached to the objects being monitored. The inexpensive process should enable them to be used for all sorts of interesting applications, such as monitoring food spoilage.

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
