Description: 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 you’ve 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 for us to build and easier for you to 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: A portion of this sale is given back to Dr. Leah Buechley for continued development and education of e-textiles and also to Arduino LLC to help fund continued development of new tools and new IDE features.

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.

  • what is the the Arduino coding software to create an “e-textile”?

    • It’s the exact same code as a standard Arduino, so you can still use the Arduino IDE. E-textile refers to hardware that is designed to be sewn into clothing or other fabrics. It’s a thinner pcb, more low profile parts, and generally more rounded to prevent snagging on fabric. Also, you can connect these using conductive thread, instead of having to solder wire to them.

  • Folks may want to know that the the LilyPad Simple board that comes with this will not power either of the bluetooth mates. It is explained on the page for the LilyPad Simple, but not afaik here, nor on the bluetooth mate pages.

    • Sorry about that. I just added the note to the description above. Have you been able to get your project working with another power source for your bluetooth device?

  • How come this is the same price as the retail kit?

  • Hi, what do you think about a lilypad development board with the “LilyPad Arduino USB - ATmega32U4 Board”?

  • Does this do anything straight out of the box?
