Paper-based Electronics and Art

Aaron Mazzeo (Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering)

Paper is an ideal medium for folding (origami), cutting, embossing, casting, inking, and painting. Combine these attributes with electronic components on or within paper, and there are some interesting opportunities to build mechanical structures and add sensing, lighting, or color. In this hands-on seminar, students will have the opportunity to review state-of-the-art research in paper-based electronics, and then exercise creativity in an engineering lab to build their own electronic systems that they will design while keeping in mind aesthetics and artful creativity.
