|Executive Summary:||Smart materials that respond to and adapt to changes in the world around them are the next frontier in engineering and manufacturing. Silk Displays creates Smart Plastic Materials for the display and electronics industries and is currently focused on developing materials and processes for flexible plastic liquid crystal displays and electronic plastics with embedded intelligence. Smart Plastic innovations, including flexible color displays, promise a broad range of innovative, durable, lightweight products usable in all environments. Smart Plastics also provide greater design freedom leading to new, innovative product opportunities such as roll-able or foldable electronic displays, shapeable displays that conform to windshields or dashboards, and large area electronics as an integral part of a product surface. Enabling electronics and displays on flexible substrates also provides the potential for print-like roll-to-roll processing for inexpensive, efficient, and high-volume manufacture. Silk Displays’ Smart Plastic approach has the potential to expand into product innovations in plastic electronics, autonomous sensing, imaging, self-diagnosing, smart textiles, packaging, health, security and energy. |
