LilyPad Arduino Embroidery

Arduino Craft & Design Technology

I just finished my first composition with the LilyPad Arduino, in the form of a conductive blinky embroidered wall hanging. It generates a little tune that’s changeable by covering the photoresistor. If you’re around Phoenix, you can come see it on Friday night at Cartel Coffee Lab in Tempe.

    hey this is cool, but you should change the sensitivity so you get the “interesting” musical changes without having to have your hand so close!

    Yeah, I thought about that, but the lighting conditions change depending on where it’s hanging, so I really just need to make it have a calibration mode or something. Thanks!
