A technology revolution is happening. For a long time, electronic components were accepted as being rigid, rectangular, and somewhat bulky. As a consequence, today's computing devices are typically flat, rectangular, and have a fixed shape. But a new technology is challenging this established view. Printed electronics offers a new way to realize fundamentally different electronic components that are paper-thin and deformable, that can cover large areas, and that can be deeply embedded within various materials and geometries. These new possibilities have already been influencing HCI research and consumer electronics through flexible OLED and e-paper displays. Research such as Gummi,…
