Paper circuits are a fantastic way to teach the basics and fundamentals of creating an electric circuit without the need to solder or code a single thing!
If you are unfamiliar, a paper circuit is a functioning electronic circuit built on a paper surface instead of a PCB. Projects can range from greeting cards, to origami, to traditional art such as paintings or drawings. What makes them unique is the use of traditional fine art techniques to create a circuit that is combines aesthetics and functionality. Paper circuits are becoming more and more popular in the hobby electronics world. The easy availability of craft-like materials and increasing abundance of new products has created a really unique ecosystem for crafters looking to make the leap to electronics projects.
While Coin cell batteries have previously been used extensively in paper circuits, the ACCC no longer allows the sale of them unless they are used with a certified battery holder that has a captured screw or multiple movement release.
With this in mind we have removed the coin cell batteries from our kits and across the site and are now using a AAA battery pack with breakout board.
