Just to note that Nanoident's printed electronics factory is up and running. Also I'm seeing more and more talk about the need for open hardware. Well, it's all starting to kick off - hybrid printers (both functional form and electronics, something I talked about at EuroFoo'04) are just around the corner ... they've been in some labs I know for a few years now, obviously research stuff.
IDTechEx's printed electronics conference is just around the corner, this will be the first Cambridge one I've missed but I'm sure it will be great as usual.
I notice that Tim is also running a session on "On-demand manufacturing"
