Agic Inc. Makes Circuit Making Only A Pen Line Away


08/01/2016


The Japanese Company has invested a conductive ink that follows through a pen and turns into a conductive agent.



In a report to Reuters, Holly Rubenstein informed that a start-up in Japan came up with a conductive ink in a pen which allows one to directly “draw electrical circuits”.The said invention is sending the industry of electronics into a futuristic revolution, whereby the “pen with conductive ink” has been given the name of "Circuit Marker".
 
In a “Circuit Maker”, a “silver-conductive ink” takes the place of the normal traditional ink. The said conductive ink was traditionally used in “circuit printers”. However, presently with the help of Circuit Maker, one can easily “draw on paper embedded with electronics”. This process shortens a lengthy one for as the ink dries up it turns instantly into a conductive agent. The Chief Executive Officer at Agic Inc., Shinya Shimizu, said:
"Traditionally electric circuits are solid and thick and it was very difficult to be put up across the walls or the floor. However, with our "Circuit Marker", you can simply draw it... For example, you can use it for security purposes by embedding an entire building with electric sensors. We are thinking of connecting everything by printing electric circuits on all surfaces in the home."
 
In fact, the maker of conductive ink will most likely save “engineers money too”, while Shimizu added:
"Electric circuits are generally pretty expensive, with prototypes easily costing 50,000 to 100,000 yen. It also takes some time to make, like a week. With our company, we only need to print it, making it much easier to try new creative ideas."
 
However, there are hopes that the said technology will tread into the field of education, whereby “making circuits” would be rendered “more fun and approachable”. It will also be a way to encourage “students to shine at school”. The product is available for purchase under “$40” which also comes with a “A4-size Circuit Paper”.
