Disney researchers use 3D printing to create simple displays and sensors

Disney researchers use 3D printing to create simple displays and sensors | 3D Printing and Fabbing | Scoop.it

"A group of engineers at Disney Research in Pittsburgh has demonstrated a range of new 3D printing techniques, allowing for the integration of elements such as displays and sensors into cheap, printed objects. The new approach takes advantage of recent developments in the types of materials that can be employed in 3D printing, focusing in particular on "high resolution transparent plastics with similar optical properties to plexiglas."

Additive Manufacturing Technology and Smart Packaging

Additive Manufacturing Technology and Smart Packaging | 3D Printing and Fabbing | Scoop.it

"The current state of AM technology does not appear to be able to overcome the hurdles that exist at the intersection of smart packaging and RFID. But, the Industrial Revolution occurred over 60 to 80 years, so industry may just have to wait to see if AM is truly the next revolution, and if it can conquer the challenges such as those presented with printing RFID."

Susanne Kahle's curator insight, June 27, 2013 6:56 AM

Interesting article regarding several aspects of 3D Manufacturing/3D Printing technology (Speed, Material, Costs) - especially an incoming more or less "seamless" integration of RFIDs within the production process adds a lot of potential. 

Beth Robinson's curator insight, June 28, 2013 3:32 PM

Great article evaluating whether the current 3-d printing tech is sufficient to carry out what sounds like a neat idea to solve an existing problem in adopting a different leading-edge technology The answer is no, but the thought process is worth reading.

RFID has so many applications that can save lives.
