3D Inking and GE Electronics

On the recent GE Looking Ahead posting in the Economist online, they discuss a technology called 3D Inking. It is similar to 3D printing, except that what is being printed is more complex electronics structures such as integrated circuits or sensors. Combined with other types of manufacturing such as textiles or even embedded in 3D printing, this technology poses some very interesting possibilities for producing electronics unlike anything ever seen before. (Imagine a circuit board on a scarf, or electronics embedded inside solid blocks of 3D printed plastic!)
