12 Jan 3D Printing Wireless Connected objects
Thanks to 3D printing, objects could be connected to Wi-Fi.
In November, researchers printed objects in 3D while using the so-called backscattering technique, or backscattering.
A copper filament antenna was integrated into each object when it was printed in 3D.
This allows to reflect the radio signal sent by the Wi-Fi router in order to be decoded by the phone’s Wi-Fi receiver.
Concretly, they present various prototypes of 3D printed applications including buttons, smart sliders and physical controllers wirelessly controlling the volume of the music as well as smart bottles capable of detecting the flow of liquid and sending Datas.
