The National Research Council (NRC) is the Government of Canada's premier organization for research and technology development. NRC's Printable Electronics (PE) initiative coordinates key industrial areas - materials, ink, printing, ICT and digital manufacturing - as a springboard for a competitive, sustainable and large-scale PE sector in Canada. Working with commercial partners, NRC has established a product development and demonstration capability to give its customers a decisive competitive edge in producing PE products for world markets. NRC seeks new partnerships for collaboration on product-driven applied research. NRC's current PE research priorities encompass Functional Materials, Functional Devices and Functional Imprinting.

SonoPlot designs and sells Microplotter® materials dispensing systems for drawing features as small as 10 to 20 microns. Our patented ultrasonic dispensing technology enables true contiguous lines for superior conductive traces and enables the deposition of a wide range of materials, including solutions containing graphene, carbon nanotubes, nanoparticles, and polymers. This technology allows the Microplotter® to print inks with viscosities up to 450 cP without the hassle of tuning them to the printer. Integrated digital video and precise positioning allow for accurate alignment and dispensing on substrates. The Microplotter® systems provide unparalleled price per capability in the market.
Intrinsiq Materials is an advanced materials company with facilities in Farnborough UK and Rochester US, providing nanoparticle based copper ink formulations for printed electronics applications. Our copper inkjet ink, 'Intrinsiq CI', and copper screen print paste, 'Intrinsiq CP', are innovative ink formulations designed for photonic curing at room temperature in air, by laser or broad band flash techniques. Conductivities are comparable to commercial silver inks on a range of substrates, including paper. The company has additional inks under development, including nanoparticle based nickel and silicon.
Allwinner launches their sub-$200 Google Glass platform based on their Allwinner A33 quad-core ARM Cortex-A7, designed by Taiwanese design house Coretronic, it integrates the same optical prism engine optics and design as Google Glass, takes 5 megapixel pictures and 720p video with its built-in camera, with a built-in touchpad on the side for navigation in Android, it builds in a 680mAh battery. Also comes with WiFi, BT4, GPS and classic sensors, it could also work with voice control (all depends on Android support). The $199 end consumer price that I write here in the title depends on what the distributors and the brands decide to sell it for, it depends on design house costs to production volume to brand who sells it to consumer's demand, the $199 price is me being enthusiastic and overly optimistic based on what I expect can be the demand, on what I expect some brand could decide to mass produce and sell large quantities for, based on what I know of the cost of Allwinner A33 (cheapest tablets sell below $30) and the expected cost of the microdisplay engine).

Haier is launching their ARM Powered Haier Chromebook 11 to be shipping any day now at http://amzn.to/1yrxBY2 for shipping all over the USA with availability probably in all Chrome OS countries also imminently. The Haier RK3288 Chromebook 11 has a nice matte type of display, which may make it preferable for me over the Hisense and Asus one. But if matte or not is to be exclusive to this model or not, is to be confirmed. Again I would prefer a 13.3" matte RK3288 Chromebook with 4GB RAM and with at least 13 hours of battery life. To challenge my $199 Acer Chromebook 13!
