Paintable Circuits with Bare Conductive

Matt Johnson spoke with me about the conductive paint that people were using and showed me a few projects that demonstrate the possibilities. The business cards they brought were printed with a swath of conductive paint suitable for home experimenting. It’s exciting how this opens up a great area in education for arts, electronics, and physical programming.

Bare Conductive grew out of the founders’ graduate studies at the Innovation Design Engineering Course at the Royal College of Art and Imperial College, London.

The paints can be used to create traditional circuits, and for signalling with the Arduino.
