A team of German Scientists from the university of Saarland have developed a technique that allows anyone with a printer to produce a touch screen in minutes. Here is a video illustration of this revolutionary process.http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2j1b7b
Printscreen can quickly and easily print electroluminescent screens on a large number of materials, such as paper, plastic, metal or wood. A team of German scientists from the University of Saarland have indeed developed two methods to print these screens.
The first technique works with a stencil making it possible to overlay materials that make a surface eletroluminescent. The second technique uses a classic printer that will use a special ink which is required for the manufacture of the screen.
The principle allows the integration of flexible displays and touch on all kinds of personal items. Combining this process with the 3D printer can print three-dimensional objects that can display information and respond to touch.
