describes our vision of a new class of mechatronic devices
that differ from their traditional counterparts in both device
fabrication and design. Our goal is to build fully functional
mechatronic devices without assembly. These devices will integrate
structural, mechanical, and electronic componenets during
fabrication using an all inkjet printing process. We intend
to develop a complete 3D printer, and create a vocabulary
of mechanical and electronic components.
