Electrick – Create Touch Surfaces Anywhere with a Conductive Spray

[ Via Futurism ]

Electrick is a newly developed electrically conductive spray that can turn anything into a touch interface. It will be both available to consumers as well as manufacturers. Because there’s quite literally an infinite number of possible applications for tech like this, it wouldn’t be surprising if this is something that will deeply affect the way people of the future interact with their basic environments.

A more detailed explanation of applications and fun examples (including jello interfaces!) has been provided in this seven minute video from the Future Interfaces Group:

  2. Hi! I love the possibilities this product (Electrick) introduces! Is it available for purchase and if so, where could I find it? If it is not when will it be available for purchase?

  3. Daisy –

    Electrick is not currently a product you can purchase, but they explain how to make your own version with off the shelf materials. The spray they are using is a carbon conductive paint. They also conductive fabrics and 3D filaments for different projects. It is all shown in the bottom video starting at 1:54. See link:
