1. An integrated multilayer structure comprising:a first substrate film having a first side and an opposite second side, the first substrate film comprising an electrically insulating material, the second side having a number of electrical conductors thereon that exhibit predetermined characteristics at selected wavelengths;
a plastic layer on the first side of the first substrate film so as to at least partially cover the first side of the first substrate film;
an embedded color or graphics layer exhibiting a selected color, figure, icon, graphical pattern, symbol, text, numeric, alphanumeric, and/or other visual indication feature; and
circuitry provided on at least one of the first and second sides of the first substrate film, the circuitry including at least one electronic component selected from the group consisting of: an optoelectronic component, a microcontroller, a microprocessor, a signal processor, a digital signal processor, a sensor, a switch, a touch switch, a proximity switch, a programmable logic chip, a memory, a transistor, a resistor, a capacitor, an inductor, a capacitive switch, a memory array, a memory chip, a data interface, a transceiver, a wireless transceiver, a transmitter, a receiver, a wireless transmitter, and a wireless receiver, the circuitry further including at least one conductor, the circuitry being functionally connected to the first side of the first substrate film, wherein the plastic layer on the first side of the first substrate film and the at least one electronic component on the second side of the first substrate film while being functionally connected to the first side of the first substrate film defines a first configuration of the multilayer structure, the first substrate film having a planar arrangement in the first configuration, and wherein the multilayer structure is configured to transition from the first configuration to a second configuration of the multilayer structure, the second configuration different from the first configuration, the multilayer structure configured to be retained in the second configuration, the first substrate film having a non-planar arrangement in the second configuration.
