Disney Presents 3D Electronic Objects With Circuits Printed Right Into Them

 

From Research friends at Disney!

 

Printed Optics is a new approach to creating custom optical elements for interactive devices using 3D printing pens. Printed Optics enable sensing, display, and illumination elements to be directly embedded in the body of an interactive device. Using these elements, unique display surfaces, novel illumination techniques, custom optical sensors, and robust embedded components can be digitally fabricated for rapid, high fidelity, customized interactive devices.
