Squishy Circuits

Squishy Circuits is an approach to exploring and learning electronics. This method uses homemade sculpting dough recipes – one that is conductive, and another that is insulating – to replace wires and insulators. Squishy Circuits can be used to model basic circuits, but can also be used as an interface for more advanced microcontroller projects.
