Convergence of Printing and Electronics: Highlighted at the Printed Electronics Conference
Press release from the issuing company
CAMBRIDGE, England, October 27 -- The ability to print electronics as quickly and cheaply as colored ink will bring massive improvements to fields as diverse as aerospace, medicine and consumer packaging, not only providing additional functionality to existing products, but opening the way to produce things that have never before been possible where conventional electronics are too expensive, fragile or bulky. This technology will enable a ubiquitous electronic world tackling many errors and inefficiencies and dramatically improving lives.
