A UK small company are world leaders in creating interactive posters and displays whereby electronic circuits are printed in a conventional press. Sounds, lights and logic circuits make the displays stand out clearly. Using standard components, the technology is now affordable both in large and modest volumes. The company is offering new product design, prototyping or manufacturing under commercial agreements with technical assistance.
A UK small company are world leaders in developing printed electronics products using conventional printing techniques. There are many companies out there who offer conductive inks etc but very few have the creativity and expertise in printing to develop solutions that are ready to roll.The company is in pre-production with large partners in North America and Europe, with products such as books, board games and intelligent packaging. As the technology matures, it has become more affordable so that runs of a few thousand copies are feasible.The pictures depict some concepts. There are switches and tracks printed on the boxes. Using pick-and-place a circuit is later added running software written by the company. In the below cases, various sounds have been added to make the packaging come alive but equally lights and any other electronic components can be added. The cost largely depends on the volumes but can be a couple of Euros.The company is already in partnerships with large packaging manufacturers and can offer full solutions.Innovative Aspects:The company has deep expertise and know-how in printed electronics, product design and prototyping.The advantage is the creation of truly interactive promotional displays that are affordable in modest volumes.
