Lumitronix utilises paper and PET as printed circuit board
In cooperation with its technology partners, the Swabian LED company Lumitronix succeeded in equipping plasma-metallised flexible printed circuit boards with electronic components. This is based on the one-of-a-kind process of plasma metallisation.
Robot circulatory system powers possibilities
Untethered robots suffer from a stamina problem. A possible solution: a circulating liquid - "robot blood" - to store energy and power its applications for sophisticated, long-duration tasks.
Robots to the rhino rescue
With just two northern white rhinos remaining in the world, both of whom are female, scientists are racing against the clock to rescue the species from the brink of extinction. Decades of poaching and habitat loss have led to their dramatic decline. Hope for their survival now rests on scientists' ability to develop innovative methods for repopulating the species.

Conductive inks & applying that knowledge to biometric sensors
Sheldahl Flexible Technologies discusses their progress at the IDTechEx Show! USA
Senior Technology Analsyt Dr Xiaoxi He reports her findings from CES 2019
Robots with sticky feet
Jet engines can have up to 25,000 individual parts, making regular maintenance a tedious task that can take over a month per engine. Many components are located deep inside the engine and cannot be inspected without taking the machine apart, adding time and costs to maintenance. This problem is not only confined to jet engines, either; many complicated, expensive machines.
Freer Logic demonstrates EEG technology
Dr Jacob Skinner has described Freer Logic's presentation at this November's Wearable USA show by IDTechEx as 'leagues above' anything he has ever seen. The two-day event, at which Dr Skinner gave a presentation called 'Making Wearables Truly Compelling', aimed to showcase the best in emerging tech and was attended by large corporates and disruptive startups.
