Abstract:
On Dec 5-6, attendees to the Printed Electronics USA conference and exhibition in Santa Clara, CA, will receive their own origami printed electronic device. One of the compelling benefits of printed electronics is that electronics can be used in completely new and innovative form factors.

Origami Electronics at Printed Electronics USA: Leading designers of printed electronics collaborate on printed electronic demonstration give-a-way

Santa Clara, CA | Posted on November 30th, 2012

The demonstrator consists of printed circuits on traditional paper, which only become functional when the device is correctly folded - the design of the folded paper is part of enabling the functionality of the circuit. The innovative design utilizes conductive silver ink, printed batteries and traditional LEDs to create an interactive user experience in the form of an origami sail boat. The circuit will illuminate the boat's mast light and logo, and highlights the technology's growing use in the area of interactive packaging and printed media.

The sample was built in collaboration with a number of partners, including Cal Poly, Blue Spark, NovaCentrix, Fujifilm Dimatix, Sappi Fine Paper, 3M, Esterline and IDTechEx.

All attendees will receive their sample at the Cal Poly booth, part of "Manufacturing Street." In addition, Manufacturing Street brings together organizations in the supply chain who will demonstrate a number of printing and process steps in interactive sessions throughout the event, printing functional inks and demonstrating how the sample was made.

The event also features "Demonstration Street", a large area dedicated to showing a full range of complete working products. Visitors will have the opportunity to closely examine samples, prototypes, and commercial products. These demonstrators, that incorporate printed electronic functionality, will help attendees envisage how printed electronics can be integrated into their own products, in addition to keeping your own very unique sample.
