PCB Making Fun

Last night at Hack the Evening we had a look at the latest in Printed Circuit Board printing technologies from this mob who have successfully funded a Kickstarter campaign to create a direct-to-surface pcb conductive track printer. In short the printer prints PCBs out of almost anything. To show why this is a great thing, we also made some PCBs by hand, so I thought I’d pop up some before and after photos…

While this was a purely decorative piece with no real function, we’ll look at putting together a proper useful PCB for the actual workshop.

Any thoughts on what it could do? PCB business card? Mini oscilloscope? Blinky light?
