matt, you can also use the conductive ink on non-flammable textiles or other mediums that are less likely to catch aflame as a start.

this is neat.  i bought a "conductive ink" pen from radio shack last week with the intention of posting a "light up" ad on one of my school's bulletin boards.  one of my concerns though is that of accidentally starting a fire because I will not be around to monitor the ad.  


That brings up the issue of "trust" as mentioned in one of the blog posts of the e textile conference.  I don't think I could confidently say that electricity flowing through a garment, or in this case paper, would not cause a fire. 


All it would take is one such accident to derail and discredit the momentum of wearable technology or any technology involving circuits outside its traditional medium.


I would love to see a blog post talking about precautions one should take when working with said technology.
