According to technologist Dan Walker, the future is going to be printed. Well, not exactly, but many things that we today patch together or assemble, will actually come to us as complex printed objects. By loading the standard printers we use today with special inks that conduct electricity, we can print electronic circuits onto the objects, making it even easier to connect them to the Internet of Things.
