Printed sensors are not a novelty: force sensing resistors (FSR) is a proven technology and are manufactured by screen printing a functional polymer. Interlink Electronics was the first company to commercialize FSR and has more than 25 years of experience in manufacturing them. But there has been a lack of innovation. The company is now looking for new acquisitions and partnerships.
