The ProtoSnap series is a new way to prototype your project
without a breadboard. Everything is wired together on a single board, which
makes it easy to explore the possibilities of the components before snapping
them apart and building them into your project.
The ProtoSnap LilyPad Simple Development board is a great
way to get started in programmable e-textiles. By combining a LilyPad Simple
board with 4 LED boards and a buzzer, the ProtoSnap LilyPad Simple Development
board gives you everything you need to learn the basics. The kit also includes
our LilyPad FTDI basic for programming the Simple board, conductive thread and
needles and a Li-Po battery pack to power everything. The LiPo battery is
rechargeable through the board; no more special external LiPo chargers
required! The board also includes two pads to connect sensors using alligator
clips (or use as a nifty touch-sensor).
This kit does not include a USB cable. You will need a USB
mini-B for the FTDI basic.
Note: A portion of this sale is given back to Dr. Leah
Buechley for continued development and education of e-textiles and also to
Arduino LLC to help fund continued development of new tools and new IDE
Note: Because of the added battery charging circuitry the
Simple is unable to power a device from the FTDI header meaning that the
Bluetooth Mate, for instance, is no longer plug'n'play compatible. Please use
caution when using this battery in wearable projects. When using conductive
thread, a short in the thread can create sparks and heat. We recommend using
coin cell batteries for beginners.
