Deformable Electronic Circuits

Thermoplastics are a class of polymer that can be heated and molded into new shapes which harden when cooled, then reheated and remolded many times. Meander geometry describes the snaking curves often found in rivers and other similar forms. Meander shaped wires are configured in a snaking pattern which allows them to bend and stretch. […]

Generic Re-programmable Electronic Circuits

It is possible to create flexible and controllable pathways of conduction by polarizing atoms. This means a single microchip or electronic circuit can be reprogrammed to accomplish different specialized functions. Perhaps someday soon, we’ll have a generic kind of electronics woven into everything we use. Electronic circuits with reconfigurable pathways closer to reality – [epfl.ch] […]

Recipe for Homemade Flexible Electronics

Combine pencil leads and dishwashing liquid, mix on high speed in a blender, pour the liquid into an ink cartridge and insert it into an ink-jet printer. Place a sheet of special fabric or plastic into the printer and print the circuit design onto it. Fold the printed sheet according to directions and connect it […]
