Welcome to #TheoreticalThursday at Maker Camp. My name is Lenore Edman, and I'm one of the founders of Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories. Today we'll be talking about circuits and making some Electric Origami. You can find the complete project instructions here: http://goo.gl/eTsmd 

Paper is a pretty awesome material for circuits. In this case, we will use it as as a translucent and flexible thin-film electronic circuit that hooks up a battery to an LED, and forms its own diffuser to cast a nice glow. 

We'll be using several materials from the kitchen: aluminum foil for conductive traces, freezer paper to attach them to, parchment paper to protect our work area and tools, and a bamboo skewer or toothpick for drawing with. We'll also need scissors, an LED and a battery. 

As always, we’d love to see your project pictures, so upload them to Google+ with the #MakerCamp hashtag. 

We'll be doing a live Hangout at noon PST. Tune in to hear more about what you can do with paper and circuitry.

But can you put wings on it? (Rhetorical question - I want to see the electric origami water bomber!)

How big should the pieces of paper be cut? Around 6-by-6 inches?
 
Amazing, and oh so thought provoking.

+Max Eliaser  as long as the paper is square you can make the balloon. To get the balloon lit, I have no idea
