Stan Farnsworth of Novacentrix discusses the PulseForge 1200 and its accessories, including the EX1 Controlled Environment for photonic curing at the IDTechEx Show! in Berlin. Novacentrix also shows their roll to roll print and curing systems, which can be used for a range of printed electronics applications, including wearables.
NovaCentrix offers industry leading photonic curing tools, material and expertise enabling development and production of next generation printed electronic devices – some already on the market. PulseForge® tools utilize photonic curing which is a cutting edge technology that dries, sinters, and anneals functional inks in milliseconds on low-temperature, flexible substrates such as paper and plastic. PulseForge tools can save time and money, and enable new types of products in applications like solar, RFID, display, packaging, and circuit.

Self-charging using photo voltaic, piezo electric or thermo electric energy harvesters
No cabling or maintenance
4 x longer lifespan than conventional lithium ion batteries
40% improvement in energy density (compared with alternative solid state battery technology)
Increased temperature range: up to 100 degrees C plus (30% higher than existing products)
No free lithium - non-flammable
Lenovo Motorola Moto Z is an amazing new Smartphone, with Greybus (watch the video that I filmed with Greg Kroah-Hartman on their Greybus development for Google's discontinued Project Ara) based data and hot-swappable power pogopin docking technology on an ultra-thin Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 Smartphone design, with options to dock a TI DLP Pico Projector MotoMod, a Hasselblad True Zoom Photo/Video Camera, JBL SoundBoost Speaker and the Incipio offGRID Power Pack, all MotoMods that customizes and expands the functionalities of a Smartphone. An absolutely fascinating potential evolution for the Smartphone market, Motorola is developing a potentially amazing ecosystem for future-proof MotoMods that can turn your Smartphone into a Project, into a point-and-shoot quality Camera, into an amazingly loud Speaker and that can expand its battery life easily. All these MotoMods are magnetically locked onto the back of the Moto Z. Now Motorola is also releasing the Moto Mods Development Kit to enable third parties to develop new MotoMods for the Moto Z, for example I hope someone makes an ultra-thin E Ink Mobius (flexible, plastic and non-glass) display for the back-size of the smartphone, a Kent Displays CH-LCD based notes taking back case and a LapDock Laptop Dock to use the Moto Z to power the Ultra-thin Laptop dock and desktop dock. The functionalities of Moto Z can also expand through the TurboPower fast charging USB Type C which I have used with USB Type C to SD card adapter, for example to upload videos from my SD card to YouTube. The possibilities with the Moto Z ecosystem are very, very interesting. But for these to get the attention of the consumers worldwide, I think that Lenovo/Motorola needs to lower the price of the bundles to around $599 for the phone including the Projector MotoMod, $699 including Projector and E Ink MotoMod, $349 or $399 for the Moto Z by itself (instead of the current $699). $699 should also be a bundle to include an ultra-thin and ultra-light small bezel 13.3" Laptop Dock and Desktop Dock MotoMod and with the appropriate Remix OS like Android implementation through Android Nougat to support full Android Powered Productivity on the external display.
Trump scammed the Republican party. Gridlock in the US congress might be over by Trump forcing through policies that Republicans might embrace yet not really be that conservative. Change might be coming, also to Google/Twitter/Facebook unblocking in China. Here is a video-hangout with Jay Umaretiya, AKA Stromium, who is posting texts for hundreds of my videos being posted on http://ARMdevices.net over the past several months, and he will also be posting many more in the year to come as we post an average of 3 new tech videos per day on http://ARMdevices.net every day, the whole year.
One of the potential segment for devices that I am quite excited about, is the E Ink based large screen connected stylus touch e-reader. Provided it gets the perfectly smart implementation, it can unlock a world of being more productive reading and annotating all kinds of texts, in all kinds of fields of study, professionalism, creativity and curiosity. Reading on an E Ink display has already been proven by Kindle to be an awesome experience. Make use of customized Android for E Ink devices, WiFi and Bluetooth, and the potential for this device can be really great and for me is quite exciting. This is the Onyx N96ML, a 9.6" 1200x825 E Ink Pearl display with stylus touch and front light, running on the NXP Freescale i.MX6Solo Lite for E Ink, running Onyx's advanced customized Android UI for E Ink. You can buy it for $379 at Amazon.com
