Cambrios won this award for their ClearOhm transparent conductive material which is starting to replace indium tin oxide (ITO). Touchscreens using the material are already on the market and high performance OLED's, photovoltaic devices flexible displays have been demonstrated. Cambrios' silver nanowire-based ClearOhm solution is suited to deliver high conductivity (ranging from

Cambrios ClearOhm material is successfully enabling commercially available consumer electronics devices today. Among these, the LG CEM division of LG Electronics (LGE-CEM) uses ClearOhm material in the 23" touch panel for the LG V325, a new Windows 8 certified All-in-One PC. The popular Japanese Docomo NEC N-07D Medias X Smartphone is also equipped with Cambrios ClearOhm material, which allows for its incredibly thin (7.8mm) and light (119g) design, as well as its clear, vibrant screen.

T-Ink received the Product Development Award at the Printed Electronic USA Conference in December of 2010. Now T-Ink's Smart Surface InMold system has been commercialized in the recently launched 2013 Ford Fusion - the first Smart Surface 3D Overhead Consoles are just now being delivered into Ford's award winning 2013 Fusion.

The Smart Surface process allows T-Ink's specially formulated "thermo-flex" inks to conform to any shape and size substrates and allow T-Ink to print on the "B" side (opposite) of the substrate to create a uniquely interactive capacitor application. The process can be thermoformed without losing conductivity, can be exposed to extreme heat scenarios and can be tuned to be activated via touch or defined distances.

You use a printer, FWIW clear film is also avai

If you don't want a white background you can get clear adhesive film that can be printed on.
and this stuff is supposed to be good for outdoor use (it's white though)
