Not sure that there is a forum space best for this…but I had to share it.

For anyone obsessed with circuits or electrical, this is going to blow your mind.

A few years ago I was taking an introduction course for printing technology at Western Michigan State University and one of the hot topics at that time was printable circuits. Their orientation was mostly related to production printing of RF-ID circuits. I wonder if this technology and the work at Western Michigan have any thing in common. It is possible that one may have solutions for the other, but the two know nothing about each other.

That’s a likely scenario crank…but then again, that’s why PHD’s spend so much time reading newly published articles related to their field. I’m sure though, that the folks who developed this pen are hoping to license the tech to as many folks as they can, so it’s likely that it will be integrated into circuit printing in no time.

It’s absolutely fascinating though. As much as I am terrified of some of the tech coming down the tubes, I’m still completely blown away by the ingenuity.

I worked in the solar industry for 8 years printing that ink on solar panels. Works great.

The problem is that the ink is 95% silver by weight, so the cost is pretty extravagant. Other inks work, but conductivity is pretty low so they’re not very useful.
