In recent years, dielectric hydrogels were found to take an enabling role in important fields of polymer chemistry and material science. Tailored dielectric hydrogels combine the unique dielectric properties with the flexibility and properties of macromolecular architectures, giving rise to a new family of functional polymers that opens new areas of applications such as stretchable electronics. In this short colloquy, an overview of dielectric hydrogels has been provided. It is envisioned that these materials will impact a range of sensory applications in material science field.
