Pioneers Insights: Plastic And The Power Of Printed Electronics


Like it or not, plastic is woven into the fabric of our lives. But it took a visit to the Greiner Ideation Hackathon in October for a non-specialist like myself to understand a blooming technology that effectively weaves information into the fabric of plastic.


Ultimately it was German company Prismade that took honours at the hackathon, with its experienced crew impressing Greiner by showing how invisible conductive ink could be used to embed interactive ID tags in plastic.
