Circuit Scribe – make your own electronics with just a pen


Circuits are the building blocks of technology. They’re in everything you love. The guts of all your prized possessions. Unless you work with them though, chances are you don’t really care about how they work, until you find you can use them to make something cool. Circuit Scribe is a pen that lets you literally draw your own circuits.

Obviously you’ll need more than just the pen to make this little bit of awesome come to life. You’ll still need a power sources, input, and output modules, as well as connectors. The pen and ink are just the traces (ha! that’s punny). Even so, all that can seem rather daunting if you’ve never played with this stuff before, but relax. This is built for fun and learning

Because the connectors are all designed to touch ink on page you don’t have to worry about more advanced tools and can start simple. Make a light turn on. You can do this. No pressure. As you get more comfortable you can add more pieces and expand to more complex projects. Start small. Dream big. The Circuit Scribe is $45 for the Basic Kit.

Donyae’s love for technology is based on a need to survive our future robotic overlords. Know thy enemy as you know yourself. But since even odds are on the zombie future, she has also learned how to prepare squirrel. You can find her on Facebook until the robots – or zombies – rise up.
