Please join us for the first Vermont Makers Meetup of 2013! We are excited to have three local presenters who are passionate about flexible, printable and paintable circuits. For a preview of this meetup see this recent interview with Molly Smith of WCAX.
New (and Not So New):
Techniques and Technologies for Flexible, Printable, even Paintable Circuits
Tuesday, February 12, 2013
Time: 7pm. This is a 1.5 – 2 hour event
Suggested donation at door: $5 – $15
Miller Center, Champlain College
175 Lakeside Avenue, Burlington, VT
Michael Metz will share his 35+ years experience working in the world of printable electronics. Topics covered will include: the history of printable electronics, materials used, printing techniques, currentÂ applications, revolutionary new technologies and emerging applications.
Chris Thompson will show his recent experiments in producing do-it-yourself printed circuit boards. He will demonstrate his technique using desktop illustration software and a CNC vinyl cutter to produce these flexible, adhesive PC boards from copper foil.
Ken Howell will show some of the ways artists and designers are using conductive materials to build working circuits on flexible substrates. We’ll look at what’s available and try out some materials to build a simple circuit or two at the meetup.
We look forward to seeing you!
