OSU liquid metal printing discovery demonstrates the future of electronics

Form fitting control panels, stretchable sensors , self healing smartphone screens – this is the future presented by 3D printed flexible electronics. Versatile components made using this technology are currently in development , and researchers at Oregon State University (OSU) have made a new discovery. By combining Galinstan, a liquid metal alloy, with nickel, the team successfully created a paste that could be 3D printed into stretchy, electrically conductive components. 3D printed tests of OSU’s lquid metal paste.
