One of humankind’s biggest technological steps was the ability to print words on paper. Now, thanks to UT College of Engineering assistant professor Anming Hu, it’s technology itself that is being printed. Hu, of the Department of Mechanical, Aerospace, and Biomedical Engineering, has researched a way to print circuits on paper, the main impact of which could be a decrease in cost and an increase in portability for any number of devices.
