Royal College of Art IDE Workshop: Liquid Piano
Conductive paint in liquid form creates droplet switches!
We ran a very successful workshop with the Royal College of Art’s Innovation Design Engineering programme. 20 MA/MsC students were each given a pot of Electric Paint and a loose brief to explore the material. The outputs were fantastic!
Turn on a Paper Lamp with Electric Paint
Liquid lamps - tilt switches using Electric Paint
Turning LEDs on and off using Electric Paint
To begin you will need:
1 x Electric Paint 50ml
This simple (but very cool) switch uses Electric Paint (diluted with water 1:1) a syringe and two electrodes placed close together. As the material drips out of the syringe, one drop at a time, the drop hits the electrodes and closes the circuit.
