Using an advanced liquid solution called NanoINK, materials design firm Decker Yeadon has developed a flexible paper surface that is capable of conducting electricity. The solution is made up of primarily conductive carbon nanotubes smaller than a DNA molecule, mixed within a solution that helps imparts their electrical properties onto cotton fabric and paper. NanoINK has been developed with architecture implications in mind, though we’ve also seen manifestations of similar developments applied to innovation in interactive entertainment, self-powered wearable technology, and to health-focused filtration systems.
