    The visible electricity device: visible breadboard



    Visible Breadboard is the Breadboard like interface which shows voltages of each and every hole by full color LED and enable us to make wiring by tracing with finger tips. Users could insert electrical material into the holes and make a circuit on this device. Users could understand what is happening in the circuit and correct the connections with finger tracing.
