At the moment plastic will not be replacing silicon because the plastic components are larger (5-10 micrometres) than silicon (nanometres – billionths of a metre). However, Plastic Logic is working on shrinking the plastic circuits.
Of course, if one wants to venture into fantasy, imagine circuits in your clothes, furnature, walls in your home, windows and who knows what else. Living in your home can become more organic as you can control temperature and security and entertainment simply by rubbing a pillow or a button. Wow!
