Have you heard about this new technique of printing slicon?
This should bring down the cost of wearable electrons. They can use it on paper.
It would be great to have an Apple watch or even Samsung watch but, they are way over price.
Smartphones are way over priced, too big and bulky.
LOL, you can get some free date Apps.
Silicon printed on paper (credit: M. Trifunovic et al./Applied Physics Letters)
Researchers at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands have pioneered a method that allows silicon, in the polycrystalline form used in circuitry, to be produced directly on a substrate from liquid silicon ink with a single laser pulse.
The capacity for printing silicon ink onto substrates has existed for some time, but necessitated a 350° C thermal annealing step — far too hot for paper and other common surfaces. The researcher’s new method bypasses this step, transforming the liquid silicon directly into polysilicon.
