This is not a ‘frog turned into a prince’ story, but a very long quest by technologists. Technologists and, yes, advertisers, started dreaming about printed and flexible electronics decades ago, as early as 1970s. Products they wanted to develop evolved over time, but the core requirement of such printed electronics remained the key. The quest for large and flexible banners that could deliver interactive ads, and tablecloths that could be computer displays, evolved into the search for phones that could be folded up like handkerchiefs and flexible digital watches that would cling to your wrists. This continues to grow into more complex goals like flexible body implants and printable human tissues.
