3D printers a step closer to printing a mobile phone

3dprinterThere has been lots of hype about the new generation of 3D printers when, in reality, the things that they can print are very limited. It is impossible, for example, to print a working IPhone. It is possible to print the casing, but it has not been possible to print the complex circuitry that makes the thing actually work – until now!

Microsoft Research in the UK have found a way to print the complex silver circuit boards on to paper.

According to The New Scientist

The new system has been tried on $80 inkjet printer and it worked well on photo-quality paper.

So, perhaps it will soon be possible to print a working mobile phone or laptop.

More to the point, they don’t say what will happed to the empty cartridges full of silver ink!
