Squishy Circuits

So I found This Website the other day while searching for quick small projects. This site provides recipes for conductive and insulating "play dough" that you can build simple circuits out of. I'm going to cook up a couple batches tonight and start playing around with it, and I'll try to remember to bring some to the Saturday build so you can all take a look and play with it yourself.

aside from the fact that this is awesome (I mean, playdough that you can plug in? yeah!) I'm thinking that something like this would be fun for members with kids, or as a possible outlet for introducing young people and beginners to electronic circuits. This could even be used for "youth workshops" that we could use to increase club visibility within the community.

Think of all the crazy stuff you could do with that! Yeah, I'm definitely interested in messing around with it.... I wonder how much voltage it can take.

I made them with my kids a few months back. All we really tried was to get some LED's and a DC motor to power. Neat and fun for the whole family.
