DIY Business Cards That Light Up When Passed Out Will Definitely Catch Everyone’s Attention

Touch-Enabled Business Card

The point in handing out business cards is to get people to get back to you. Hopefully, you made a good enough first impression to the person you handed it out to. But in case you didn’t, then you can let your card do the work for you. All it takes is a little ingenuity, a higher-than-usual budget for cards, and some skills–much like the ones Jay Kickliter has when he came up with his DIY electronic business cards that light when it’s touched.

Jay created the calling cards for a job fair and used a capacitive touch printed circuit board to build the whole thing. It’s a creative way to show off your skills if your line of work is connected to electronics. Jay is happy to teach anyone interested in making their own cards and has published instructions on how to do it on his site.

Hit the break to check out a video of the business cards in action–or rather, in circulation.

Call Of Duty MW3 Took 16 Days To Reach $1Billion

By David Ponce

While it might be unfair to compare apples to oranges and gaming franchises to Hollywood movies, that’s what the cool public relations’ companies are doing these days, so let’s roll with it. It took James Cameron’s Avatar 17 days to cross the $1billion milestone and now Activision’s one-upped the man by taking one day less with Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 3. We are actually somewhat surprised as we recently reported that it took MW3 just 5 days to cross $775million. Sales tapered off rather quickly as it took another 11 days to add $225million. Still a very impressive figure and a sure sign that the franchise is nowhere near death. With next generation consoles undoubtedly in the making, get ready for many more years of this craziness.
