Today's Printed Electronics and Imagination Equals T-Ink Success

SpecialChem / Jul 6, 2007

T-Ink in the USA is a model to everyone in the printed electronics industry when it comes to innovating for major brands. Using basic printed components such as interconnects, thermochromic displays and touch buttons, T-Ink made a successful interactive tablemat for McDonald's in Australia and a successful interactive party tablecloth for Hallmark. It invigorated the Cluedo board game after twenty years as a purely printed, non electronic product by making it interactive and its radio pillow with printed controls was a success at Toys R Us. One of its more recent projects has been with General Motors the US car manufacturer which has integrated printed wires supplied by T-Ink to control electronic applications in a select line of concept cars. The printed wires will be integrated throughout the dashboard electronics, windows, sunroof and bonnet to power the in car applications. T-Ink claims using the technology will replace cumbersome wiring that is boxed into the paneling of cars and free up more space for design.
