Soft bread board creates a kinder gentler circuit

These homemade prototyping breadboards are made from strips of conductive foam, cloth, and thread and work nicely for just about any DIP component you can think of. Check out the link below for a nice pictoral how-to on building one of these for your next project.

    What is “conductive foam” and where do I get some? :D

  2. RocketGuy says:

    They pack chips w/conductive foam to protect them from esd, and it also protects the pins a bit from getting crushed.

    Just google for conductive foam, it’s easily found.

    I love this use of it though, brilliant!

    Might have to make an electronics course for kids with this stuff…
