"AgIC" (short for "Ag ink circuit"- Ag is the symbol of the silver chemical element) is a company and technology which enables printing/drawing an electric circuit on paper. Recent advances in material science have made it possible to manufacture conductive ink, which contains tiny silver nano-particles (between 1 and 100 nanometers in size - less than a hundred thousandth part of a sesame seed). The ink can be used for printing any circuit design with an everyday ordinary home printer, or for drawing "wires" of electric circuits on paper (special printing paper) using a special marker. The ink dries in a few seconds and conductivity emerges instantly. the printed/drawn circuit works for 1 year as long as the printed sheet is not physically broken, with the possibility of laminating it for a longer life span.
