Harvard’s Hybrid 3D Printing of Soft Wearables

Our smart wearables are going to become even more sophisticated in the future with flexible electronic components. Researchers from Harvard’s Wyss Institute and Harvard SEAS have already developed a new 3D printing platform to integrate soft and hard electronic elements into stretchable sensors that move with the body.

As they explain:

This is achieved by first printing a stretchable conductive ink. As the printed ink is stretched, its electrical resistivity increases. Next, surface mounted electrical components are digitally pick-and-placed in precise locations.

The printed wearable sensor is mounted on a stretchable textile fabric. Such approach can be used to develop more sophisticated smart wearables with flexible properties.
