New in the Maker Shed: Lilypad Beginner’s Kit

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!

I am the Evangelist for the Maker Shed. It seems that there is no limit to my making interests. I'm a tinkerer at heart and have a passion for solving problems and figuring out how things work. When not working for Make I can be found falling off my unicycle, running in adverse weather conditions, skiing down the nearest hill, restoring vintage motorcycles, or working on my car.
