Chibitronics Chibi Lights Circuit Stickers are a creative and fun way to learn electronics. Circuit stickers are LED circuits on peel-and-stick stickers. Build circuits without soldering, plugging wires, or clips. Instead, use the stickers with conductive tapes to draw circuits on paper and other crafts. Learn to build circuits while make interactive artworks. It’s easy, fun, safe and creative.

Our Chibitronics Starter Kit comes with the illustrated Circuit Sticker Sketchbook. The Sketchbook walks you though five circuit concepts including parallel circuits, switches and resistance-based sensors. Every activity comes with a circuit theory lesson, a template with drawing activity and then an open-ended activity for you to design and create your own circuits. Since the circuits are completed right on the pages of the book, you will have an interactive sketchbook of working circuits to refer to as you design your own projects. Best of all, you’ll be able to learn new electronics concepts while also expressing yourself in whole new ways.

Use these peel-and-stick circuits to add electronics to any sticker-friendly surface: paper, fabric, plastic, the sky’s the limit!   Circuit Stickers are an approachable way to learn and create electronics through craft, whether you’re just starting out with circuits, lighting up your favorite art, craft or science project.

Turn nearly anything into a game controller or computer key with this cool device! The MaKey MaKey Standard Kit is an Arduino-based device that lets you turn nearly anything into a computer key. Just attach the included alligator clips to food, people, liquids, Play-Doh, or any other somewhat conductive material for a whole new level of interactivity and fun.

Imagine for a moment that you could turn nearly anything into a game controller or keyboard. What would you do? Create a drum kit from oranges? Play Doom with your alphabet soup? With the MaKey MaKey, it’s possible!

The MaKey MaKey uses high resistance switching to detect connections. This allows it to detect a “button press” even if the material is only somewhat conductive. The onboard ATMega32u4 communicates to your computer with the HID (Human Interface Device) protocol allowing it to “act” as a keyboard or a mouse.

The front of the device has 6 inputs arranged like a classic video game controller. These inputs can be attached via alligator clips, soldering to the pads, or any other electrical connection. Need more inputs? There are 12 more inputs on the back, 6 for keyboard keys and 6 for mouse motion, all of which can be accessed by connecting jumpers to the female headers.

Want to change the behavior of your MaKey MaKey? Since it’s Arduino compatible, you can just reprogram it in the Arduino IDE.

Includes MaKey MaKey HID board, mini-USB cable, 6 jumper wires & 7 alligator clips.
