Scientists have created a digital paper that can talk to you. The interactive paper billboard, which has been created by a group of scientists in Mid Sweden University, emits sounds when it is activated by a user’s touch.
The paper billboard uses pre-recorded sounds to react to a touch by the user. It uses conductive inks, which are sensitive to pressure, and printed speakers to emit sounds.
The research team behind this new innovation hopes that this new technology could be used in the future for advertisements and if it succeeds, it could be used for product packaging.
The paper billboard that emits sound can also be used in marketing holiday destinations. For example, if you were to touch a billboard with a picture of a beach, the billboard will emit the sound of the beach. The key to the billboard’s capabilities is a layer of digital paper that is embedded with electronics.
The digital paper has conductive inks, which will relay information, on application of pressure, to a micro-computer that contains recorded audio files. Sound then streams out from printed speakers, which are formed from more layers of conductive inks that sit over an empty cavity to form a diaphragm.
The layer with all these mechanisms is sandwiched between a thick sheet of extra-strong cardboard and another sheet of paper that is printed with the billboard’s design. At the moment, this talking paper is really expensive and the researchers are trying to find out ways to reduce the cost of production so that it can be produced on a commercial scale.
