Sustainable Local Resources and local recycling or reuse of our wastes enable more virtuous products life-cycles, while providing universal access to modern knowledge and technologies.
Our research in Materials Science and Paper and Printing Engineering applied to such resources has now been widely applied to the Development of sustainable Hardware resources for the study, prototyping and from craft to industrial production of a variety of Human Computer Interfaces and other connected objects with embedded custom electronics.
Efficient, Educative and Econologic: this is the Paper Logik!
Papier Logik technologies started being explored since 2003 with specialised research centers at Pagora INP-Grenoble, France, and APPI Monash Uni. Melbourne, Australia.
These research in Materials Sciences quickly found a strong development potential and multi-disciplinary collaborations started with other engineering labs in electronics and computer science under the lead of the MUSICTECH and PPRC research center at McGill University, Canada.
This research resulted in a PhD thesis on paper-based touch sensors for Digital Music Instruments, and various other related Master or PhD Thesis world-wide. We also published various conference publications and journal articles such as this article in the Computer Music Journal, MIT Press in 2014.
Global Knowledge for Local Life-Cycles
Paper-based electronics can be produced, used and recycled or disposed locally with a low carbon print and this can be done everywhere there is a renewable access to fundamental resources such as wood or other organic fibers and water.
Thus, basically any country in the world can make clever use of among the oldest and best industrial processes along with our project database to develop local, autonomous and sustainable electronic industries.
Join an International network of a variety of scholars, designers, researchers, artists, or else just Geeks that already benefit and contribute to this world-wide project. Strengthen local collaborative antennas and provide access to those technologies to ensure an optimised economic and ecologic Life-Cycle for this Project.
It is never too late for getting back to studies and the internet can make science easier and more entertaining: the Grow Seeds pages were written to re-initiate you to basic knowledge for a useful and safe practice of electronics.
The Papier Logik Project aims to provide a full Data Base of Fundamental Knowledge, Know How, Resources and Tools that are linked to our Research and Developments.
These resources can enable anyone to make use of sustainable goods through a variety of Application examples.
We then hope you will find great usage of these project resources to learn, practice, produce, repair hack and re-invent your own custom electronic devices and future technologies.
A more Efficient and more Sustainable Development Potential
Efficiency is not only how good is a tool but also how Sustainable it is: if a knife cuts well but breaks easily, this is not sustainable, especially if its life-cycle require consequent water and energy consumption and if materials are not recycled.
We aim to find the best compromise between high products efficiency, high usage resilience and low economic and ecologic impact, which involves to explore various fields of sciences and technologies.
