When Play Dough Meets Electricity
Have you or your kid ever wondered what would happen if you combined play dough with electricity? Apparently the tinkerers at London-based tech and arts collective Technology Will Save Us have wondered the same thing. What they came up with is an ingenious kit that lets kiddie mad scientists experiment with electricity by creating sculptures and scenes using homemade, conductive dough that can be animated with light and sound. The kit, aimed at kids ages four and older, includes instructions for making handcrafted dough with ordinary household items and electronic components to learn how electricity flows through a circuit. Additional LED lights, buzzers and switches help bring plain, lifeless dough to colorful life. Check out Technology Will Save Us’s fun Pinterst page for more inspiration.
Available at Technology Will Save Us, starting at $31.
