Note that this is 1st prototype which looks very ugly because it's burned, corroded and scratched because of my trials, but with some practice you can make much nicer circuits...

BTW i was inspired by this: http://vimeo.com/14410320

Such CD-CircuitBoards can be great when:
- you are an artist (you can make circuit on almost every plastic, eg.: old creditcards,cellphones,...)
- you don't have money to buy/make regular PCB
- you don't want to buy/make regular PCB
- you need circular PCB
- you need flexible PCB
- you need transparent PCB
- you like recycling everything
- you are bored

Warnings:

1.) Do NOT inhale the fumes created by heated plastic! When melting the plastic (eg.: pushing heated wires to CD) be sure to ventilate your room sufficiently and to wear some lung-protection (respirator, gasmask,...). Best idea is to make this outdoor...

2.) Do NOT clean rest of soldering resin from CDs with aceton - plastic will get hard, etched and may crack (in my case CD cracked imediately after touching aceton due to inner stress created previously by heating the plastic)... You can try using water, soap, brush and similar tools to clean the resin... You can also solder carefully, so resin will not touch the CD...
