Printed Electronics technologies enable the seamless embedment of technology into any object, from smart cards and posters, to packaging, smart wearables, or even medical patches. These technologies were largely unavailable, until now. Printoo’s kits come with printed batteries, electrochromic displays, printed polymer solar cells, ultra-thin LED die films and printed photodetectors.

By making these technologies accessible, open and easy to prototype with, Ynvisible hopes Printoo will help generate a wave of innovation to make the physical world smarter and more enjoyable.

Printoo is also great to bring 3D printed projects to life. Being thin and flexible, it can easily be inserted inside 3D elements to power DC motors, LEDs and connect to a smartphone via Bluetooth low Energy.

Printoo cores run Arduino software and interact with a full array of flexible, ultra-thin components that give Arduino enthusiasts the most dynamic set of tools to create anything imaginable. Besides its’ novel printed electronics components, Printoo kits also  include paper-thin cores, Bluetooth LE modules, DC motor drivers, capacitive keys, conductive ink adapters, and a multi-sensor module that includes a light sensor, accelerometer, and temperature sensor.
