Create Electrical Circuits Anywhere with Paint

I’ve seen magnetic paint and chalkboard paint, but I’ve never seen conductive paint before.  Bare Conductive makes conductive paint that allows you to paint electrical circuits anywhere: floor, ceiling, clothing, walls – anywhere but skin.  The paint is water-based, non-toxic, and air-dryable.  Once dried, it becomes the circuit.  You can paint over it so it blends in with the surface it’s painted on, and you can even paint another layer of conductive paint on top without interfering with the previous circuit.  Check out the Bare Conductive website for ideas, and go to ThinkGeek to purchase some Bare Paint Conductive Paint for $29.99.

    Resistance is a bit high, so this stuff can’t carry a lot of current. Also, if it cracks, the circuit is broken.

    Kinda cool, but its not good for very much without the amps. It would be fun to paint a tree or something on the kids walls and light it up with LEDS. Or maybe stars on the ceiling.

    Would be nice if it was red and glowed when powered.
