The LilyMini ProtoSnap is a great way to get started learning about creating interactive e-textile circuits before you start sewing. Like other LilyPad ProtoSnap boards, the LilyMini ProtoSnap has all of its pieces wired together out of the box, enabling you to test the circuit’s function before you sew. At the heart of the board is a pre-programmed LilyMini microcontroller connected to a LilyPad Light Sensor, LilyPad Button and two pairs of LilyPad LEDs.
The LilyMini ProtoSnap ships with pre-loaded code that uses all the LilyPad pieces connected to it. This sample code has three modes, which can be selected by pressing the LilyPad Button on the bottom-left side of the ProtoSnap. The built-in RGB LED on the LilyMini will change color to indicate which mode has been selected:
- White: All LEDs on.
- Magenta: LEDs fade in and out in a breathing pattern. When the light sensor is covered, LEDs fade faster.
- Cyan: LEDs off. When the light sensor is covered, LEDs will twinkle.
The LilyMini board, at the center of the ProtoSnap, has a built-in battery holder for a CR2032 battery (included). The board can also be powered through the microUSB port while connected to a computer for reprogramming. On the opposite side of the LilyMini you will find the SAMD11 brain, which controls the ProtoSnap. You can use the built-in code to make your own projects, or you can reprogram the LilyMini using the Arduino system.

Hi , This board is designed to allow you to check out how the circuit works before you snap all the individual components out and then sew this into your project. It is a good starting point if you have used e-textiles before, as the board comes out of the box ready to test and then one component at a time can be sewn onto your project makes the connections match as they do on the board. We have a range of e-textiles tutorials on our website which might also be helpful, https://kitronik.co.uk/blogs/resources/e-textiles-wearables-tutorials-resources
