This news about printed electronics, contained in a news summary (http://goo.gl/8ToK3) I posted about 12 hours ago, deserves its own post.

"At the core of Veres' work is a blending of material science and printing technologies. And that means developing a series of special inks that incorporate the desired functionality, be it sensing, light-emitting, or even chips."

It will be great when printed electromics are possible with #3dprinters but when do you think it will be possible for average people to print entire computers? How about in year 2025, 2030, or 2035? Perhaps as early as 2020?

"It's still very early days, but researchers at the Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) have been taking significant strides in developing a new technology that makes it possible to print electronic components like sensors, transistors, light-emitters, smart tags, flexible batteries, memory, smart labels, and more."
