Website | @johnsarik

John Sarik is working on a PhD in Electrical Engineering at Columbia University. He currently works in the Columbia Laboratory for Unconventional Electronics and has previously worked at IBM Research Tokyo and Microsoft Research Cambridge. His research interests include open hardware in education, energy harvesting wireless sensor networks, and printable electronics. His personal interests include nixie tubes and anagrams.


Printable electronics have the potential to enable a revolution in open hardware design. We present a prototype electronic material printer based on a commercial desktop 3D printer, demonstrate its capablities, and present a roadmap for the development of printable, open components based on unconventional electronics.
