circuit scribe: draw circuits instantly with conductive ink pen

soon, makers and hackers alike will be able to doodle their own circuits with ‘circuit scribe‘, a ballpoint pen full of quick-drying conducting ink. developed by PhD researchers at the university of illinois, the drawing kit will enable users to build circuits with nothing but a coin battery, paper clip, and LED, or build complex circuits with multiple components and other open source hardware. unlike other similar conductive ink pens, the ‘circuit scribe’ has been precisely tuned so that just the right amount of ink flows to create a conductive circuit – achieving a conductivity of 50-100 milliohms / square / mil.
the ‘circuit scribe’ is currently seeking funding on kickstarter.
