PaperPulse: An Integrated Approach for Embedding Electronics in Paper Designs

PaperPulse is a design tool that enables designers without technical backgrounds to produce interactive paper artifacts by augmenting them with electronics. Users overlay visual elements with interactive widgets and specify functional relations between them. Then PaperPulse generates layered electronic circuit designs, code for the microcontroller, and instructions for assembly.
