About this project
Thanks to everyone for making Crazy Circuits a success. Check CrazyCircuits.com for new projects, information, and parts.
Crazy Circuits is a non-soldering electronic learning platform that allows people to create circuits from almost any material they can imagine. Crazy Circuits are designed to pop onto LEGO™ bricks, enabling your LEGO™ creations to shine, move, and make noise. Use Crazy Circuits to construct paper crafts with conductive tape, use conductive thread for sewing, and create art with conductive inks and paints. You can even program sketches with Arduino compatible Crazy Circuits boards. No matter what you want to build, Crazy Circuits brings it all together.
Starting a creative or electronics project can be a daunting task. To get you started, we’ve put together a series of monthly projects designed to inspire creativity. Each month will feature a beginner project to show you the ropes, and an advanced project to test your skills. With all the materials you need right in the box, you’re free to follow our instruction guides, or get inspired to build your own creations.
Everyone likes to try new things, which is why we’ve partnered with some of the biggest names in the Maker community for our subscription boxes. In addition to Crazy Circuits parts, subscribers will receive conductive paint and pens, specialty building bricks, Bluetooth robots, and much more to enable their creativity.
Crazy Circuits is for anyone who wants to combine art and electricity. From a kid making paper crafts, to an engineer building LEGO™ spaceships, Crazy Circuits has something for everyone. If you promise not to swallow anything, Crazy Circuits is for you!
Crazy Circuits is designed to get your projects off of clunky breadboards and onto things you’ll actually use.

Producing custom parts designed to fit onto LEGO™ bricks requires a high level of quality and precision. To ensure that Crazy Circuits boards meet these standards, we’re having them made right here in America.
As supporters of the Maker Movement, we believe strongly in the principles of open source hardware and software. All of the design files for Crazy Circuits, along with electronic part numbers will be available for download from our GitHub repository. In addition, all instruction sets and any code for past subscription projects will be available for free to anyone at any time. With these resources our fans will be able to create their own Crazy Circuits parts and projects. We can’t wait to see what people make!
In addition to getting Crazy Circuits parts and supplies from us, all Kickstarter Backers will receive a Minimum of $10 off future Crazy Circuits parts orders.
We don't want our Stretch Goals to be just about money, or percentage backed. We've instead opted to make our Stretch Goals a whole lot more fun. Unlock the Achievements to receive fun parts.
We'll also be giving away free stuff on our Facebook and Twitter pages. Who doesn't like free stuff?
Risks and challenges
Every project involves a certain amount of risk. We have never had a product manufactured at the tight tolerances or high quantities required of Crazy Circuits. We have addressed this issue by working with a manufacturer just across the border in Illinois.
Running Crazy Circuits as a subscription service will also change the way we do business. Adding the subscription component to our standard shopping model means that customers need the ability to manage their subscription and update addresses and payment options. We have just completed a redesign of our website to enable these features, and we will be testing this system in the summer months leading up to the first Crazy Circuits monthly shipments.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
