Electric conductive paints for makers!

Electric conductive paints for makers!


Imagination has gone farther this time with an innovative technique of graphic conductive electric circuits!! In the form of paint that is! This group of innovators called Bare Conductive have totally nailed it with this great product that not only provides interesting knowledge about electric circuits to kids, but also lets your imagination flow when using their products as DIY projects at home. Product comes in jar size, can, and pen style. This last one can be used as a conductive bond between wires as it dries it becomes excellent electric medium. The idea of creating graphical circuits that actually work can create even more great stuff such as drawing a lamp as in the image and actually turning up the light bulb! The pen is described by their website in this words:

This handy pen allows you to draw circuits and attach small components to your projects. Electric Paint is nontoxic, solvent free and water soluble. The Electric Paint Pen is a great prototyping tool for makers of all ages. Works great on many materials including paper, plastic, textiles and conventional electronics. Once applied the paint dries quickly at room temperature, and can be removed with soap and water.Screen shot 2013-09-23 at 9.04.30 AM

But don’t click away without watching the next video of Calvin Harris, explaining his collaboration with Bare Conductive calling it Humanthesizer. Watch the way he creates music with human synchronization with the electric paint and coordinated steps and claps!!! Pretty amazing! I might try some creations myself at home sometime!
