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. […]

Printing Liquid Metal

Flexible conductors printed on elastic materials is possible using a liquid metal nanoparticle filled ink. A new class of metallic nanoparticles is likely to spawn breakthroughs in fields such as: soft robotics, conformable electronics, wireless communications, micro/nanofluidics, wearable/implantable devices, and energy storage and transport systems. Inkjet-printed liquid metal could bring wearable tech, soft robotics – […]

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 […]

Printing Graphene With Ink-jets

Printing graphene with ink-jet technology has been difficult because it tends to breakdown conductivity. Researchers at Northwestern University have developed a new method of producing graphene flakes that can be mixed into an ink form to be printed while still retaining conductivity and flexibility. This is a move toward being able to print inexensive flexible […]

Flexible E-paper Tablets

PaperTab goes on show as flexible paper-thin tablet – [phys.org] Call it the paper tablet. Or flexible e-paper touchscreen. Or an all in one computing experience made up of a cluster of papery, tablet screens, each behaving like an app. However you look at the PaperTab, it is difficult to avoid the word “revolutionary,” and […]

Flexible LED Tatoos

Flexible, stretchable electronic components that can implanted in a human body will help usher in the brave new world of cyborg enhancement. Using this technology for cosmetics is probably inevitable, but there are also many other uses, such as; bio-medical sensors, body network electronics and a variety of other nano-skin applications. Flexible LEDs for implanting […]
