GE’s Metallic Ink Can Place Tiny Sensors Inside Jet Engines

While embedded technology can be placed into some incredibly small spaces, there are still limits. But General Electric is looking to change that with it s Direct Write technology, that uses ink made from metals or metal oxides to print minuscule, flexible sensors that can fit into small spots or harsh conditions.

GE is already testing Direct Write with some of its partners, adding that the technique could apply sensors to devices well after they’ve left the factory. Check out the video below:
