Nice.
That may be the answer to the Roland EP-7 ribbon cable failure fiasco.

Great share, this is very exciting and would be VERY useful for home use/fabrication of prototypes!  I could print out a board that I just designed and have it put together in the same day!   :dbtu:

Probably expensive but should get cheaper over time

Also we can use lazer printers to print the toner onto a piece of "heat-transfer paper" which is, technically, the "oily" bottom layer of stickers. Print on the oily side, use a clothing iron at 200 degree centigrade without steam to melt the toner to the copper-plated raw boards, cool it down, peel the paper away, and throw the board into the solution of iron chloride.
