Printechnologics a leading technology developer in field of printed electronics was awarded with the Printed Electronics Award 2011 for the best product development and the best in show award at the Printed Electronics conference, Europe`s largest event on printed and flexible electronics.
The Product Development Award was given to printechnologics for AirCode touch - a game changing new technology that enables tagging of every print product with a cheap and recyclable code that can be read out by most modern touchscreen devices like smartphones or tablet computers just by a simple touch. Thus enabling a direct and intuitive connection from print to online.
"These awards are a very important recognition of our work, proving once again that our uncommon approach to printed electronics is heading into the right direction," stated Sascha Voigt, founder and CEO, "starting with this year we will see Aircode being adopted by well known brands and many products."
Printechnologics is today's leading technology developer of electronic systems produced entirely by a common printing press. Creatively driving forward the long overdue evolution of printed paper, every kind of print product, from advertising leaflets to labels to forgery-proof packaging, is arriving in the digital age.
