Want to get started with e-textiles? The new Lilypad Beginner’s Kit, available in the Maker Shed, includes everything you need – right down to needles and thread. Your e-textile creations will be able to sense and react to light and temperature with LEDs, buzzers, and vibrating motors. The Arduino based Lilypad Simple Board acts as the brains for your project and can be programmed using the included FTDI interface. The Lilypad board also has an integrated charging circuit for the included LiPo battery to ensure you’re never left in the dark. Need a little inspiration? Check out Becky Stern’s Make: Project!
