‘Using printable electronics and rapid manufacturing processes, a more local consumer electronics industry is born. In this system, people select their electronic products online.’

There lay the basis  of the London Royal Collage of Art’s O.Update project by Hannes Harms, Alex du Preez and Peter Krige.

They conceive the increasingly likely premise that in the future, consumers will select their own electronic products online. They will browse through an online database of electronic products and customise the objects they wish to have. The database can then link them to their local store.

At that local outlet, technicians will assist the customer in manufacturing their unique products using 3DPrinting, laser cutting and acid etching. In this way, objects are only manufactured on demand – this system could localise electronics manufacturing and reduce electronic waste.

Products can constantly evolve through update cards. While an update is available a new printed electronic card is sent to the customers and the old electronic cards are sent back for re-manufacture or recycling.

Here is how they conceive their project, ‘O.Update,’ to materialise:
