They say their conductive polymer will be "prices competititvely" with ITO even though its said to be 10-times faster. Besides transparent widow defoggers there are plenty of other apps in the making too,

General high conductivity transparent materials applications

I guess this puts this conductive polymer into a high performance category with regards conductance versus transparency, regardless of its application target, and at a reasonable cost alternative to indium tin oxide to boot. This true?

The automotive glass de-fogging, as well as transparent antennas caught my eye. Making both these applications transparent would be great.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
