New from Sparkfun Electronics is the LilyPad protoboard, a way to easily whip up your own sewable electronics. Available in two sizes.

This is a large board for prototyping through hole components with the LilyPad system. There are an array of pins all shorted together with 10mil traces. This allows for quick and easy prototyping – all you have to do is cut the traces between holes you don’t want connected! Standard 0.1″ array. Check rear photo for trace configuration.
