3D Printed WiFi Devices

This has been blowing up in my news feeds and I thought I would share as I can see this being very useful in our domain.

Go read the article and watch the video.

The tl;dr is they embed ferromagnetic material into the plastic and then sense the backscatter WiFi signal that occurs as the 3D printed gears, springs, sliders, etc move.

I haven’t read the full paper yet so it isn’t clear to me how the data is decoded or how it would get into OH, but it sounds like a fantastic next step.


interesting topic, but actually never heard of it.
Are there any updates?

I’ve not followed it since posting.
