The idea for Circuit Scribe was born out of conductive ink research in a PhD lab at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. The inspiration behind putting the ink into a rollerball pen stemmed from the founder’s passion for exploring ways to seamlessly integrate electronics with everyday materials. By allowing users to create circuits the same way they write their name or draw a picture, the barrier of entry into the electronics world is lowered dramatically.
Circuit Scribe believes science and art go together like peanut butter and jelly, circuits don’t have to be hard lines. It encourages users to take the laws of electricity they learn and turn them into something functional and beautiful.
