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 Development Board is designed to get you started in the world of e-textiles. Combining a LilyPad Simple Board with other LilyPad components like a buzzer, a vibration motor, an RGB LED, a button, a switch, five LEDs, a light sensor, and a temperature sensor, the ProtoSnap LilyPad Development Board lets you dive right into wearable electronics. When youve learned how to program the LilyPad Arduino Simple Board, break apart the components and explore the power of the LilyPad platform.

We've made some minor changes since the last revision that make it easier forusto build and easier for youto snap. We haven't changed anything about the way it works though, don't worry!

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 xLilyPad FTDI Basic

  • 1 xNeedle Set
  • 1 x110mAh LiPo Battery

hi, I am a fashion student and currently working on wearable technology. The design i m working on will have minimum 50 Led with 3 different colour. As at the moment my knowledge is zero about wearable technology but after seeing some of the tutorial on your website I got a little understanding of it. My question is how many lily pad development board and which cable will I need. please do reply ASAP. Regards Shaheena

    The main issue you will experience with this is powering the LED’s. off a normal coin cell battery you would be able to power around 6LED’s, and even off a polymer lithium battery you would struggle to power much more before reaching the safety cut off limit. As such your project would be difficult to achieve.
