Circuits on Paper

November 10, 2013

Jie Qi's Circuit Sketchbook.

Here’s a cool project we stumbled across: the Circuit Sketchbook. It's a DIY notebook with a cell-phone power supply built into the back that allows the user to create functional circuit prototypes on paper using conductive metallic tape and small electronic stickers (LEDs, microcontrollers, and more).

Pretty cool, right? It seems like a project with huge potential for teaching people about circuits, and for allowing makers to fool around with designs on the go. Check out this video of example circuits for a few more great ideas of what a person can do with this sketchbook, as well as an explanation of how it works and how it was put together.

The circuit sketchbook is designed by Jie Qi, a Ph.D candidate at MIT. Check out more of Jie's DIY projects.
