Interesting article. I don't know why these guys don't believe in wheels? Using conductive Ink pens (Radio Shack has them,they're good for fixing remote control pads), I have made circuit boards out of paper. Maintaining a good contact is difficult though. This looks like a standard printed board that can be programmed. There are many small printed boards. One called a 'Basic Stamp" is sued and can be daisy chained. That together with "Raspberry Pi' would give your robots the ability to display messages' You could send it to your wife and sask, "Get me a cup of coffee!" At which point my wife would probably drop kick the robot back towards me telling me to get my own, but I digress..Very Interesting!
When we were kids,we used to make simple circuit board by rubbing pencils and making the traces with the graphite, which conducts electricity really well. Making a box for a battery, it became easy to make a notebook that would open with it was closed. Being a kid, we could not imagine having the light source on when you were reading, but I don't think that would have been too hard to make.
These could make some interesting models. Adding some functionality to them. Great find!
