Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) coated materials. ITO is a clear, conductive liquid/film suitable for different types of materials.
ITO is a clear, conductive liquid/film and here we have it as a coating on a flexible plastic (PET) sheet.
When Bunnie showed up at Adafruit with the prototype for his Chibitronics Circuit Stickers we were all like "How on earth does that work?" and he was all like "Z-Axis tape - Its amazing!"
Copper tape has countless applications in electronics from creating low-profile traces for electrical components to RF-shielding and antenna-making. Copper tape is even used to join things together using solder, like the stained glass on Tiffany lamps.
This 0.005" Muscle Wire® (aka shape memory Nitinol) is a one foot long piece of nickel-titanium alloy that can flex and contract when a specific amount of heat or current is applied to it. If you are asking yourself “What sorcery is this?!” We assure you, this isn’t magic, it’s just simple science thanks to shape memory and a change between the wires weaker, low temperature form (martensitic) and its stronger, high temperature form (austenite).
This copper tape is adhesive-backed, 5mm wide and comes in rolls of 50 feet.
ITO is a clear, conductive liquid/film and here we have it as a coating on a 1mm glass sheet.
