this means you can do completely silly things like tape a chip to its pads on a circuit board or tape a ribbon cable to a memory card!
I learned about it via the latter, which is a ribbon cable you can use on a PSP Go to use normal-sized memory stick duo storage on it, and at first I thought “z-axis conductive tape” was a mistranslation or something but it turns out it’s just really clever and neat!
@ticky the first Pebble used this stuff to connect the display to the board, which wasn't a good idea as it didn't hold for long enoug, causing screen tearing
@ticky That said, thanks for introducing me to this Super Cool Thing. This seems really fun for making one-off projects for special events or experiments.
@ticky I am already thinking of all the amazing “I don’t feel like soldering this yet” use cases.
This is dark magic.
@toxicity yeah, not the sort of thing to base a project around unless it has a very particular set of requirements!
