World Maker Faire 2013: Print Your Own CircuitsInkjet Printed Flexible Circuits
Would be great for prototyping and for hacking if you could just print out your electronic circuits with your inkjet printer at home? That’s not possible yet, but Microsoft Research Labs is already doing it and they expect the technology to be commonly available in the not-too-distant future.
At World Maker Faire in New York City last month, they were showing off they have already been able to accomplish, and some of the applications that they feel it will be suited for. Put very simply, what they’re doing is using an inkjet head very similar to the one in your printer at home to print conductive ink on flexible substrates.Flexible inkjet printed circuits
