New German technology turns ink to sound

New German technology uses special inks to conduct sound and can even generate electricity.

    A professor at Germany's Chemnitz University has been developing novel technology that will transform electronics into printable material.

    Professor Arved Huebler, who has worked on the product for 12 years, calls the technology - which conducts sound and can even be used for generating electricity - "a printed loudspeaker".

    Al Jazeera's Nick Spicer reports from Germany.
