sendance – permeable electronics

Welcome to the homepage of sendance, the creators of permeable and conformable electronics. Our sensors
– can be seamlessly integrated in the surface of arbitrarily shaped plastic or wood objects
– do not disturb the mechanical properties of the surface
– can measure touch, pressure, humidity and temperature
– make objects sensitive to their surroundings

sendance is a spin-off from the LIT Soft Materials Lab at Johannes Kepler University Linz. We are a team of highly skilled and motivated people with a long time experience in the field. Our goal is to find valuable solutions for our customers to form lasting and profitable partnerships.
