[Bloominglabs-announce] Parts for the Wonderlab squishy circuits kits

I'm sure we have all those things around the space, so it might be a good
idea to do a test run to make sure everything works fine together and then
place an order.

Do you know roughly what kind of resistance the playdough will have? It'll
be dependent of the length and cross section, too. Too much resistance and
the current drops too much (V = IR) so that would be a potential problem.
But I think the best way to find out is to play with it and see...
