Inkjet printers start cranking out microchips | CNET News.com:

"Nanoident Technologies has officially opened a factory in Linz, Austria, that produces organic semiconductors, which are chips made by spraying intricate patterns of specialized ink onto layers of foil and polymer.

A traditional factory that can produce 40,000 square meters of silicon computer chips would cost about $1.3 billion and require about 5,000 employees, he said in an interview. The Nanoident factory costs about $10 million and can be run by about 50 people."
