“AgIC’s vision is to bring the fun of circuit design to everyone. We cannot wait to get the AgIC Circuit Eraser in the hands of our Kickstarter backers so we can enable more people to make circuits more easily."

AgIC Inc., creator of conductive ink markers and printer cartridges, launched a new Kickstarter project to make the world's first circuit pen eraser. This conductive ink pen eraser, when used together with AgIC’s Circuit Marker, will change the way users create and prototype electric circuits. Just like drawing with pencil and eraser, users can draw—and now edit—their electric circuits on photo paper using AgIC’s Circuit Marker and the new AgIC Circuit Eraser.
One of the most requested features from the customers is the ability to edit or fix the circuits they created. Existing conductive ink products that are commonly used by makers, STEM educators and students to design electric circuits cannot be easily edited. If a “short” circuit or design error needs to be fixed, the user will have to redraw the design from scratch. The new AgIC Circuit Eraser makes it possible to easily edit and make design changes, enabling “trial and error”—revolutionizing circuit prototyping and hands-on learning. “The AgIC Circuit Eraser is super convenient,” said an AgIC Circuit Eraser tester. “I can now edit my circuits on the fly, which is both time-saving and amazing to use.”
The AgIC solution consists of two pens: the AgIC Circuit Marker and the AgIC Circuit Eraser. The AgIC Circuit Marker writes silver conductive trace on photo paper and the AgIC Circuit Eraser erases the traces drawn by the circuit marker—easily and instantly. The AgIC Starter Kit on Kickstarter includes one AgIC Circuit Marker, one AgIC Circuit Eraser and components to make simple circuits for $25, with target delivery in March 2015.
“AgIC’s vision is to bring the fun of circuit design to everyone,” said Yuki Nishida, co-founder and head of AgIC USA. “We cannot wait to get the AgIC Circuit Eraser in the hands of our Kickstarter backers so we can enable more people to make circuits more easily.” AgIC successfully delivered a Kickstarter project in March 2014 with the launch of the AgIC circuit printing system. Since then, AgIC has received industry recognition for its innovative products, including the Microsoft Innovation Award and three Editor’s Choices at Maker Faires around the world. AgIC will be presenting at TechCrunch Tokyo 2014 (November 18-19) and at Maker Faire Tokyo 2014 (November 23-24).
