The applications for printable electronics that they forecast are:
– Printed Displays and Signage
– Printed Lighting
– Printed Sensors
– Printed RFID
– Printed Photovoltaics
– Printed Batteries
OLED based technology dominate the forecasts in displays and lighting.
The printable electronic advances from NEC and others will be making carbon nanotubes on plastic viable for competitive or dominant printable computers.
IBM could transform the future of computers if it is successful in using DNA to build carbon nanotube based computer chips with 2-6 nanometer precision
