Conductive Ink, magnetic paper, Arduino Lilypad, and more. Draw real electronic circuits on paper, instead of using an solderless breadboard, wirewrap, or a PC Board. A series of videos…
“Sketching” Electronics With Conductive Ink
The first video I had to open in UTube to see. The rest worked right in the original page.
Getting closer to ‘desktop factory’ all the time.
Printing ‘small’ parts at high resolution.
The world’s smallest 3D printer
From the picture, it looks like that connects to a computer through a standard [old style] serial cable [not USB]
The video says he built if for about 1500 € [in parts?], at todays conversion, that would be just over $2000 Canadian. He said it has the capabilities of a 60000 € commercial printer [$81100] !!
These youtube videos are from the AI course being put out by Stanford, but anyone interested in autonomous robots should enjoy this.
