Beginners guide to the LilyPad Arduino for wearable technology.
Join our one day introduction to the LilyPad Arduino and get your garments interactive!
During the course of the day you will be introduced to the basics of soft circuitry, some basic electronics, Arduino software, programming, and reading a sensor.
At the end of the day you will have a functioning interactive patch, which you can sew onto a garment, bag or cushion cover.
PLEASE BRING WITH YOU:
- A piece of fancy fabric of your choice – it is best to use something non-stretchy and stiff, something like cotton or canvas.
- If you want to bring your own laptop, please make sure you have installed the latest Arduino Software on it.
- A USB to mini-USB (you are bound to have one somewhere, we thought best not to buy more ;)
