A pen that can draw electronic circuit paths with conductive ink!

Chances are it will not work very well for guitar wiring, or any other application either.
If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Pretty cool, thanks for sharing Ray. Being able to quickly draw out and test an idea with the same drawing seems like a great way to prototype. I can see this being a great tool to teach with as well. I don't think it's intention is to put it into real world use like the wiring of a guitar.

they've had trace circuit pens for a while... but from people I've talked to they either blob up or dry out. The ball point or roller ball version might work pretty well for quick prototyping though. Pretty cool... thanks for sharing.
