Bare Conductive is a design and technology studio based in East London, UK. Our company spun-out from a student project started at the Royal College of Art and Imperial College London, where we first developed our Electric Paint. After graduating in 2009 we set up a business and started selling our paint and a range of kits that demonstrate different ways to use this incredible material. From the beginning we have been passionate about developing accessible platforms for people to get creative with technology. From paint, to starter kits and now hardware, our goal is to make electronics fun and intuitive by blending design and technology.
