CONDUCTIVE INK

WHAT WILL WALL OF THE FUTURE LOOK LIKE?

Using conductive paint and some electronics, walls can become smart infrastructure that can sense human touch, detect gestures and even detect when appliances are used. Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University and Disney Research found they could transform dull walls into smart walls at relatively low cost — about $20 per square meter.

KEY TAKEAWAY The household uses of conductive paint are obvious, but the less obvious opportunity is what retailers and brands can do with conductive paint to create magical, interactive experiences. As consumers increasingly prioritize experiences over material things, money will continue to flow toward companies focused on creating spaces tailored to differentiated experiences that can be easily shared. Technology innovation is allowing the creation of these experiences with simpler more cost-effective tools, and the only limiting factor is one’s imagination.
