Printed Electro-Mechanical Systems (PEMS)


We are developing tabletop and desktop printers capable of directly printing both structure and function in two and three dimensions. To date, we have printed actuators, logic, and display media. Such printers may be useful as personal fabricators, giving great design freedom and fabrication capability to the individual, as well as a means of ultra-cheap manufacture of oligo-layered electromechanical and electronic structures.
