Electric Paint Pen Lets You Draw Your Own Circuits

by Lambert Varias

The ink also works as a solder or adhesive, meaning it can be used to repair circuit boards or attach parts to electronics. Adafruit Industries made a short video that provides a few applications of the pen:

You can buy the pen from ThinkGeek, Amazon, Adafruit Industries or from Bare Conductive itself. Price starts at $10 (USD). MIT also has a great article on conductive paint that also has links to instructions for making your own paint.
