The folks over at Urbana-based Electroninks Incorporated just launched a Kickstarter project for a new kind of pen that draws functional electronic circuits instantly. Called the Circuit Scribe, the handy little device works like a regular ballpoint pen and releases a non-toxic conductive silver ink that dries instantly. Via Kickstarter:
Circuit Scribe is for Makers, STEM Educators, Artists, Kids, & Life Hackers. We wanted to make it easier for Makers to Make. No shaking, no squeezing, no goop, no smell, no waiting for ink to dry. Circuit Scribe draws smooth lines with conductive silver ink and allows you to create functioning circuits instantly.
The project went viral immediately easily surpassed its $85,000 goal within a day or so.

s. joao structure - street party installation by FAHR 021.3
this temporary installation ‘s. joao structure’ featured as part of the event acorda! at the guimarães institute design, june 2013. the design is a result of a local community workshop by portugal-based FAHR 021.3 architects, and is based on a typical portuguese street party - locally known as ‘s. joao’. one of europe’s liveliest street festivals, the people of porto pay tribute to saint john the baptist by traditionally hitting each other with garlic flowers or soft plastic hammers. characterized by the color of ribbons and flags that hang on the streets and the fireworks that are launched throughout the night, the ‘s. joao structure’ reinterprets this atmosphere with hanging, balloon-like forms that have a reflective, shiny material.
Amazing Street Art from Plastic Jesus
From the crowded urban streets of Los Angeles, California comes a street artist known as Plastic Jesus. He creates incredible and controversial art installations, such as a giant mouse-trap with credit cards as bait, a fake grave with flowers and a mock rifle positioned as a headstone for the 11,458 people killed during 2011 and 2012 with automatic weapons or a giant spilled can of Mountain Dew cordoned off as if it were toxic waste. He consistently creates public mixed-media pieces that point out the negative aspects of our culture into something thought provoking. The installations above are titled as followed:
- Stop Making Stupid People Famous
- Credit Trap
- Toxic Hazard
- No Kardashians
- American Excess
- RIP 11,458
