Creators can draw anything with a non-toxic, highly-conductive silver and water based ink with the Circuit Scribe’s Conductive Silver Ink Pen, letting kids draw instantly-functioning circuits by hand. Backers of Circuit Scribe’s first Kickstarter campaign received this pen, which is used for education, prototyping, and electronic art. The campaigned raised $675,000 from more than 12,000 backers, more than its original goal of $85,000. Kids can use this pen for the new DIY kits.
One of the kits available in the company’s current campaign is The Drone Kit, in which parents can work with their kids to create a four-propeller drone using cardboard and the conductive pen. This DIY drone kit will include perforated sections that ensure symmetrical shapes, which can be configured and reconfigured in multiple variations to change the drone’s size.
