Abstract

This paper describes a new approach to fabricate a flexible circuit that has stable electric resistance value against deformation. The flexible circuit is fabricated by depositing metal wiring on a folded flexible origami structure. We confirmed that the resistance value of the metal wiring on the origami structure was stable against stretching and bending compared to that of the wiring formed on a simple elastic flexible sheet. Using this origami structure, we demonstrated a simple wearable device that fits a wrist. We believe that this origami-based flexible device could be a one possible route to robust and stable wearable devices that can be freely and largely expanded.
