Electrochromic devices can reversibly change their colour in response to an applied voltage, offering us the ability to create glass or flexible films with a variable transparency.
Electroluminescent display from water and ephemeral materials
Constructing screens from scratch proved to be a great introduction to the nature of the material and how it works. First impressions…
A number of alternative materials were tested for suitability for electroluminescent lamp substrates, with both from organic materials such as felt and wood as well as synthetic.
An experiment showing potential for DIY shape changing light emitting membranes.
By combing conductive ink with degradable materials simple touch sensors can be created with unique affordances.
A touch responsive EL display configuration that produces both light and sound.
A simple loud speaker can be made from conductive ink, a magnet and any thin material.
Tubular tentacle structure actuated with EAP
Paper is a low cost and mechanically flexible substrate for printed electronics; there are already commercial paper products being produced…
