Foldio

Foldio Digital Fabrication of Interactive and ShapeChanging Objects With Foldable Printed Electronics Foldios are foldable interactive objects with embedded input sensing and output capabilities. Foldios combine the advantages of folding for thin, lightweight and shape-changing objects with the strengths of thin-film printed electronics for embedded sensing and output. To enable designers and end-users to create highly custom interactive foldable objects, we contribute a new design […]

PrintSense

PrintSense A Versatile Sensing Technique to Support Multimodal Flexible Surface Interaction We present a multimodal on-surface and near-surface sensing technique for planar, curved and flexible surfaces. Our technique leverages temporal multiplexing of signals coming from a universal inter-digitated electrode design, which is printed as a single conductive layer on a flexible substrate. It supports sensing of touch and proximity in- put, and moreover is capable […]

PrintScreen

PrintScreen Fabricating Highly Customizable Thin-film Touch-Displays PrintScreen is an enabling technology for digital fabrication of customized flexible displays using thin-film electroluminescence (TFEL). It enables inexpensive and rapid fabrication of highly customized displays in low volume, in a simple lab environment, print shop or even at home. We show how to print ultra-thin (120 um) segmented and passive matrix displays in greyscale or multi-color on a […]

A Cuttable Multi-touch Sensor

A Cuttable Multi-touch Sensor

A Cuttable Multi-touch Sensor We propose cutting as a novel paradigm for ad-hoc customization of printed electronic components. As a first instantiation, we contribute a printed capacitive multi-touch sensor, which can be cut by the end-user to modify its size and shape. This very direct manipulation allows the end-user to easily make real-world objects and surfaces touch-interactive, to augment physical prototypes and to enhance paper […]
