Paper Abstract

Paper and ink have been continually evolving since their invention. Conventional printing quality and cost is constantly improving, yet only few examples of commercial embedded electronics on paper exist. This is due to the fact that inks with optical and electronic properties do not suit conventional paper and are still challenging to print reliably. In this project, we aim to develop a new generic mass media “next generation” paper. We present the challenges and progress on book augmentation, using printing technologies such as screen printing and roll-to-roll fabrication. This first step aims to create an augmented book prototype via hybrid integration of optical sensors in its pages and by embedding energyefficient control and communication electronics in the cover. The system senses user interaction and, through wireless connectivity, presents the user with relevant, updated digital content on an adjunct device. The proposed fabrication sequence has been developed with close attention to the requirements of industrial scale-up.
