Low power electronics for humans, on humans!

Low power electronics for humans, on humans!

The development of low power electronics and devices for integration into the type of active lifestyles that are characteristic of modern humans is a vibrant area of research. Whether the electronics are wearable, epidermal, edible or even implantable, developments are taking place worldwide with new concepts, designs and prototypes that could change everyday life with minimal intrusiveness.

Pay as you go solar power

Pay as you go solar power

According to the World Bank, 1.6Bn people, over one fifth of the world's population, lack access to electricity via a grid and pay high prices for kerosene to serve basic needs such as lighting. Solar lamps and phone chargers have been available for some time but the initial cost is beyond the reach of many potential users. Now Eight19, a developer and manufacturer of printed plastic solar technology has an inexpensive pay-as-you-go, personal solar electricity system for the developing world.

At IDTechEx Printed Electronics USA in Santa Clara on the 30th of November and the 1st of December 2011, there will be a focus on technologies such as OLEDs and electrophoretic displays, with leading innovators such as Sumitomo, Panasonic and E Ink discussing their progress. But there's other display technologies emerging, at earlier stages of commercialization that promise performance enhancement, cost reduction and new possibilities. Two of these technologies, QD Vision's QLEDs and Opalux 's photonic crystal displays are described below.
