SuperSlacker64 writes “In an age where just about everything starts going digital, it’s refreshing to see someone going back to our roots: paper. Well, sort of. Researchers at Harvard have created a cheap, dime-sized, paper-based accelerometer that they believe could be used in various ways, such as inexpensive medical testing. The device works because a carbon bridge stretches and changes resistivity as the device is accelerated.” When they say “cheap,” they mean it; the cost per device is estimated to be about four cents.
