Colorful Sensors Turn Sticker Books Into Interactive Electronics

Colorful Sensors Turn Sticker Books Into Interactive Electronics

Circuit Stickers make it easy to combine electronics and art without any experience.

Ross Brooks

Andrew “Bunnie” Huang and MIT PhD student Jie Qi have created Circuit Stickers, a $25 kit of electronic stickers that you can use to build glowing, sensing, and interactive projects without any complicated equipment or programming skills. Circuit stickers can work with any conductive material – one example is copper tape – and provide a more approachable way to learn about and create electronics through craft.

The stickers are available through Crowd Supply, and come with a variety of options that range from simple LED Stickers, to Effects Stickers, Sensors Stickers, and a Touch sensor/Microcontroller Sticker. You can re-stick them a few times just like you would a normal sticker, while more advanced users can also solder them to create more permanent works.

Circuit Stickers are the perfect product to change the way people think about electronics. Instead of the complicated mess of wires that leaves you with a panic attack, you can imagine a colorful combination of stickers that are easy-to-use and adaptable. The project has raised more than $42,000 so far, and the stickers will be available for purchase until early January.
