Museum of Science and Industry

Scientists at the University of Illinois have created a new formula for electrically conductive ink that flows better and dries faster than the kinds currently available. This special type of ink allows people to draw functioning circuits on paper, plastic, and other materials. In the future, further improvements like these could make circuit building even easier for electricians and hobbyists. For right now, though, I’d love to get my hands on some just for making some awesome science-art!

You don’t have to wait for conductive ink to hit the stores to make your own circuit board. Begin your own adventure in circuitry here!
