they are talking nano scale production and so all this will be encased in a [flexable] package,
perhaps University of Pennsylvania should take their work over to the UK plasics imitatives to get products based on this into commercial role to role production etc sooner rather than later.
UK offers best support for plastic electronics

Miniaturising electronics to the nanoscale
Plastic microstructures with nanoscale features are fabricated at greater speed
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
