Use Bare Conductor's electric paint to draw shapes that play sounds, turn on lights, and more.

The small London-based design studio that brought us electrically conductive paint wants to give people the chance to use it in creative new ways. “Possibilities are limitless,” says Bare Conductive, when the paint is connected to one of their Touch Boards — an Arduino-powered device capable of playing sounds and sensing touch or distance without any programming necessary. (Although you can if you want, of course.)

The team posted a video on its Kickstarter page to show off some of these options. With a Touch Board and a relay shield to control voltage, you could paint a light switch directly onto your wall in whatever shape you’d like — switch shape, dinosaur shape, you name it.
