The Paper Alarm Clock
Designer Miquel Mora looks at the new techniques of printing electronics and wonders "What if we could 'enhance' paper instead of getting rid of it? What if we could merge the printed world with the digital one?" He says "Through printed electronics we can create processors, displays, batteries on flat and flexible surfaces like paper. Objects will wear technology instead of carrying them inside. It will become their skin." It is all conceptual, so we can forgive him for suggesting "What if objects are made of paper? How are we going to interact with them? For instance, the disposable Paper Alarm Clock needs to be scrunched up in order to turn it off. It brings new ways to experience electronic products."
