Years later, this primitive human civilization would finally give up on the idea of producing light from table dancing. Sadly, this long-sought age of table dancing enlightenment would never come to fruition in their lifetime.

These circuits have a lot of potential due to their transparency. In my opinion, the transparent quality is far more useful than the flexibility (let's face it, as Pete mentions in the video, wearable applications are kind of pointless since most components could be connected using thin wire just as easily).
Here's the idea: make educational circuit transparencies. With (semi) transparent circuits, you could more easily use them in the classroom (e.g., for projection), or couple them with some basic software to overlay a circuit transparency on top of a standard computer screen (connected to the computer via serial/USB), allowing the learner to play with various inputs in the software, while seeing the result being run on the circuit - overlaid on the same screen. What this does is close the loop between virtual or diagram-based electronics education and hands-on experimentation, making it easier to grasp and see real-world results.
Initially, the circuits could be extremely basic (simple output using a couple LEDs), but they could get more complex with logic gates, transistors, etc.
No public wish lists :(
