Given the impact of the disturbing violence at the US Capitol yesterday, we're taking it slower today and focusing on one of our favorite older projects.

The D&D bracer is a fairly quick, fun, nerdy LilyPad project. The final product is a wearable bracer with a display that will randomly generate numbers between 1 and 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 20 or 100 in response to arm movement, so it can effectively replace all of the dice in your bag for a D&D session. It can also serve as a decorative costume piece to get you in character!

Dungeons and Dragons Dice Gauntlet

August 13, 2013

A playful, geeky tutorial for a leather bracer that uses a LilyPad Arduino, LilyPad accelerometer, and seven segment display to roll virtual 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 20, and 100 side dice for gaming.

This is an intermediate LilyPad tutorial. You can expect to do a fair amount of sewing and moderate crafting, and you'll need to be able to upload code to a LilyPad Arduino board. You don't have to write the code - it's been supplied for you. However, if you want to practice or play around with it, there's room to customize!

We'll be back tomorrow with our normal Friday Product Post. Please, be safe and stay healthy out there.
