V-One conductive ink printer aims to short-circuit electronic prototyping


Many hours of design and development need to be expended on prototype layouts along with masking, etching, and populating those boards with components. Even after all of this, just one simple layout mistake can ruin all of your work and you have to go through the entire process again. The Voltera V-One aims to change all of that with the promise of a one button, conductive ink printing system solely designed to reduce the effort in rapid, small run hardware prototyping.

Modern technology allows the likes of software development, 3D printing, and CNC milling to produce rapid prototypes of all sorts of systems and objects. However, until now, there has been no quick and inexpensive way to simply push a button to see if an electronic circuit idea works. The team at Voltera claims that this is what the V-One is all about: a simply operated system that produces prototype circuit boards in fewer steps, at lower-cost, and with all of the ease and convenience of other modern-day rapid prototyping systems.
