Imec is the world's largest independent microelectronics R&D research organization with more than 2000 researchers and with over 600 companies partnering for their advanced research, Imec and Holst Centre presents the flexible AMOLED display, a flexible printed 8bit processor (similar to the first Intel processor from 40 years ago), flexible RFID and NFC tags here embedded inside playing cards together with Cartamundi, one of the world's biggest maker of playing cards, enabling new card games where cards can be read by a card reader or next also by a smartphone's NFC reader. This video was filmed in 4K at IDTechEx's Printed Electronics Europe 2016 event.
Duratouch Wristsense allows wearables to detect if the wearable is being worn or not. Going through the plastics, it allows to reliably know if the smartwatch or the sports band is being worn, which can then allow the device's software to turn off other sensors such as heartrate, tracking, when it's not being worn by the user.
