SparkFun will be closed Monday 7/4 for the holiday. All orders placed after 2pm MT on Friday 7/1 will be shipped out next week.
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 LilyTwinkle board is a very simple way to jump right into e-textiles. By including the LilyTwinkle, a coin cell battery holder (with built-in switch), and four white LEDs the ProtoSnap LilyTwinkle board easily allows you to add some sparkle to any project. To make your e-textile experience all the more enjoyable we have added a needle set and 30 feet of conductive thread!
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.

Yeah, it’s pretty radical. I used this to add blinking lights to a winter hat for my daughter as a first e-textiles project, and it was seamless. The battery lasted several hours (an entire “Zoo Lights” trip at the Denver Zoo) with 8 leds hooked up (4 white and 4 blue). The pattern is subtle, sometimes, not terribly fast, and dozens of people did a “double-take” and stopped to ask me about it. It’s also not terribly difficult to reprogram using an Arduino Uno (or Red Board, or USBTiny ISP, etc.), so you can definitely get a lot of miles out of the ATtiny85 on board. Purple is best.
