Make almost any surface glow, sense, or interact with Chibitronics circuit stickers!

Circuit stickers are an imaginative and easy way to make fun electronics projects without coding, soldering, or maker experience. Just stick your circuit sticker onto a surface and add a battery to get a unique project that reps your maker spirit. You can even connect stickers with conductive materials like copper tape or even conductive paint to create elaborate designs and art projects.

The stickers are super lightweight, thin, and flexible. They're perfect for educators, artists, and novices and are a great introduction into the world of electronics.

This is the Chibitronics Starter Kit. It contains:

  • 12 LED stickers in total (6 white, 2 yellow, 2 red and 2 blue)
  • 1 roll of copper tape (5 meters)
  • 2 CR2032 coin cell batteries
  • 2 small binder clips
  • 1 swatch of conductive plastic
  • 1 copy of the "Circuit Sticker Sketchbook" by Jie Qi, an introductory guide to using circuit stickers.




Chibitronics is collaboration between bunnie Huang and Jie Qi . Jie is a PhD student at the MIT Media Lab and her research is all about combining arts and crafts with electronics and programming. bunnie is the Director of Studio Kosagi and a hacker who designs and manufactures hardware.
