Conductive Paint

A team of students from London’s Royal College of Art (RCA) is bringing interactive electronics to an entirely new level with their Bare Paint. Their product allows users to literally draw electrical circuits on a wall without the need for printed circuit boards or wiring. Able to be used on paper, plastic, fabric, or metal, the paint itself hardens quickly when exposed to the air. It can be used as a as a potentiometer that interfaces with a microcontroller, or for powering devices like LED lights or small speakers.
