A little offtopic but have you seen latest news about 3D printed functional loudspeaker: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0OxuCqs74RA ?

What do you think about it? I'm wondering if it could be a little step to 3D print electronic parts or even modular smartphones - maybe next year ;) Don't you think, it could be cool to 3D print electronic spare parts in future :)

Interesting, there was a 3d printed circuit again the other day too.
I follow these projects with great interest, though printed electronics gets hyped every now and then - and then you don't hear from it ever again. Wasn't there a company half a year ago that announced a breakthrough regarding printed electronics?
I guess it will take another few years.

No doubt one day we will have printed transistors or even whole (simple) micro controllers, printed oled displays, printed capacitors...
The wallpaper industry will be revolutionized :mrgreen:
