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).
Note: This kit does not include a USB cable. You will need a USB mini-B for the FTDI basic. Check below for an appropriate cable if you don't already have one.
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.
Included on the Board:
- 1 x LilyPad Simple Board
- 4 x LilyPad White LED
- 1 x LilyPad Buzzer
Kit Also Includes:
- 1 x LilyPad FTDI Basic
- 2 x Conductive Thread Bobbin
- 1 x Needle Set
- 1 x 110mAh LiPo Battery
