Hello everyone, I'm back to talk to you all about the new stuff we have for this week. We have a new type of product this week, so let's dive right in and talk about what circuit stickers are.

Chibitronics Circuit Stickers - Starter Kit

The Chibitronics Circuit Stickers are exactly what they sound like. Well, the circuit sticker part anyways. They are stickers that can be used in conjunction with copper tape to create working circuits. Inside each Circuit Stickers Starter Kit is everything you need to set up simple LEDs, Switches, and Sensors with only a bit of knowledge on how electricity works and a little ingenuity! With this starter kit no soldering or sewing is required, simply peel each LED sticker and place them in specific areas designated in the included guide sketchbook and watch your creation glow. Check them out in action:

In addition to the starter kit, there are also add-on kits. The LED Effects Add-On Kit provides you with five unique stickers to make your LEDs blink, twinkle, and generally effect the way you experience them. Each kit features one twinkle, heartbeat, blink, and fade circuit sticker and adds their respective effect to your paper circuit project. Like the LED stickers you won’t need to worry about any soldering, sewing, or coding. Just peel, stick, and you’ll add some awesome effects to your LEDs in no time!

Chibitronics Circuit Stickers - Color LED Add-On Kit

The Color LED Add-On Kit is a set of 24 individual red, yellow, and blue LEDs that offers a conductive adhesive backing that can be attached to just about any surface and powered by a simple coin cell battery. That’s right, no soldering, no sewing, and no coding. Just peel, stick, and you’ll have a set of glowing white LEDs in no time!

  • OK, this is going to sound kinda dickish but I feel we should be in in an honest relationship.

    I'm getting less inclined to tune in on Fridays. It has been awhile since we witnessed an 'old school' product post. Sorry but we miss the bearded one. Not that we don't appreciate cute nerdy ladies with blinky LEDs. ;-)

    • Being honest would be nice. At this point I'm convinced they're just not doing Friday new product post videos anymore. That's fine, but be upfront about it! We've been hearing they'll be back soon for weeks now and this post didn't even address it.

      • Basically what the situation boils down to is this - the new product videos featuring Rob are not gone. But Rob has a full-time job as SparkFun's Product Manager - and, believe it or not, filming and preparing for the product video takes quite a bit of time.

        In many instances, it's easier and much more efficient for Nick, Shawn or Sarah to do the videos, as they are the ones building 99% of the demos that appear in the videos.

        Rob will certainly be back for some videos, but you're definitely going to be seeing more of Sarah, Shawn and Nick's smiling faces. They work really hard to build awesome demos of our new gear, so we hope you'll learn to love them like you love our bearded compatriot!

    • +1 I look forward to coming here on Fridays and watching the new product videos, but they've been pretty meager ever since the move into the new building (so several months now).

    • Artsy demos and consumer-friendly soundtrack. Looks like Fridays now cater to the lowest common denominator as oppose to the geek/tinkerer. We're a few episodes away from an typical Apple commercial. I miss Rob.

  • I have to admit, I come to this site every Friday for the video. Its ok once in a while to do a write up when things are thin, but the video is more than just seeing the product. The demo's and comments really make a difference. Oh and its completely OK to bring back old product and re-introduce us again. Sometimes we forget some of the cool things we havent seen in a while and now have a new application for.

  • Gonna have to agree with the consensus. I do not look forward to Friday new products anymore. Just come out and say it... "no more new products posts" we can handle it.... I do think everyone does a great job.....

  • For what its worth, I will continue to check here each Friday to see whats new. But I do miss Robert and his style. Of course I also want to see the red box studio wall return. ;)

  • We want more circuits to go where no circuits gone before.../Sparkfun ?

  • Rob= Off to do his part in " Vikings" (HBO)?

  • I'm going to have to start a conspiracy here and say that Rob must have shaved his beard off! That's why we haven't seen him in any new product post videos. :)

  • Super cool, I use the stickers for greeting cards often. Would love to see more colors stocked!

  • Very fun! kids would love to do this for a Christmas poster or happy birthday sign or anything!

    • I agree! And they are very easy to use and can be small and compact when combined with a small battery. The stickers have resistors included on them so really you just have to stick it and it all works!
