The Countdown to Maker Faire Bay Area is On!


Printing electroluminescent displays


Jeri Ellsworth talks to Jon Beck at Maker Faire about silk-screening EL displays with electroluminescent ink manufactured by Dupont. Jon is from CLUE, the Columbia Laboratory for Unconventional Electronics. (How great is that name? Their logo is a question mark where the dot is the ground symbol.) The video is a little hard to hear, with all the ambient noise, but there’s more information on the link below.

    Can anyone get post any more information on the carving printer he gestures to? I can’t make out the name he says, only that it costs about $250.

    Something like that could make my life a lot easier.

    The cutter is a Graphtec CraftROBO. We’ve had it for a couple of weeks and it’s been great.
