Plastic That Carries a Big Charge

A plastic conductive enough to make 3D-printed electronics

Sure, 3D printers can make action figures and architectural scale models, but the plastic they use isn’t conductive enough to form complex electrical components. Now engineer Mike Toutonghi has developed a 3D-printing plastic he says is at least 1,000 times more conductive than anything on the market, making it possible to print electronics with circuit boards built into them.
