Japan’s AgIC launches Kickstarter campaign for enhanced version of circuit pattern maker



This is the abridged version of our original article in Japanese.

Japan’s AgIC, a startup born out of the University of Tokyo with the remarkable electrically conductive ink technology, launched a new Kickstarter campaign today, raising funds for an enhanced version of the AgIC Circuit Marker. The new product is called Erasable Circuit Marker, which allows users to erase circuit patterns that they have drawn with silver nano ink.

Through user feedback, the AgIC team learned that many users need the ability to erase circuit patterns that they have drawn. So they included an eraser in the new version.

AgIC is seeking a modest sum of $10,000, planning to start shipping the new version in March 2015. In the previous Kickstarter campaign in March, they fundraised in a month about 8 million yen ($80,000) from over 900 backers for the current product version.
