Hack This Book: The Art of Tinkering's Conductive Ink Cover (Clip)
Date: December 10, 2013
Running Time: 00:01:35

The World's First Book Printed with Conductive Ink! The Art of Tinkering is an unprecedented celebration of what it means to tinker: to take things apart, explore tools and materials, and build wondrous, wild art that's part science and part technology. Its cover is printed with a special ink that conducts electricity, allowing readers to make their own circuits right on the book and get in on all the tinkering fun. The wonder continues inside the book, where readers meet 150+ makers and learn the stories behind their beautiful and bold work. Brought to you by Karen Wilkinson and Mike Petrich at the Exploratorium's Tinkering Studio.
This collection of individual programs tells a wide range of stories, reflecting the diverse interests of the Exploratorium community.
