That’s right, it’s now possible to create circuits on paper – it’s as easy as doodling and just as fun. Featuring technology that utilizes conductive silver ink, Circuit Scribe comes as a rollerball pen, giving the user the ability to design and create fully functioning circuitry on a piece of paper.
What makes it so special?
Circuit Scribe’s ink is water based and non-toxic, making it safe and easy to use. In fact, it looks just like a regular pen. With Circuit Scribe, teaching circuitry in schools, for one, can be done more efficiently and effectively as the technology is designed to be accessible and inexpensive.
Whether you’re building simple circuits or more complex ones, Circuit Scribe takes away all of the bulky paraphernalia that typically comes with making even the simplest of circuits, allowing the user to focus on designing the circuit systems and understanding circuit behavior while allowing lots of room for creativity. Using Circuit Scribe also results in less waste – no more wires and breadboards – and it can be cheaper since it lets you create as many prototypes as you want.
And if you’re worried that the quality will be compromised, don’t be. Circuit Scribe has been widely tested and has proven reliable in making high quality circuitry that instantly work.
The inventors of Circuit Scribe, Electroninks, have also created a range of magnetic components that snap right into the circuits you draw. These can allow you to connect the circuits to each other and create more sophisticated systems.
With Circuit Scribe, teaching electronics in a hands-on manner has just become a whole lot easier, not to mention more fun for kids and adults alike. Circuit Scribe can even be used to augment art projects (such as making a simple greeting card) or to create complex, full-fledged systems. The possibilities are indeed endless.
