Nanotube Inkjets

Inkjet printing technology is finding a lot more uses than its inventors originally conceived of. The latest move in the field is to use ink based on carbon nanotubes, which enables off-the-shelf hardware to print out images and patterns with electrically conductive properties. While still currently in its infancy, these developments could open the door to cheaper and more efficient production methods for flexible devices (display screens, for example) or electronics embedded in fabrics.
