Replacement:KIT-12729. The Sparkle Diamond Kit has a new rev with a new way to hold your coin cell battery and a new Sparkle board, go check it out! This page is for reference only.

Sparkle is Aniomagic's avant-garde way to make interactive textiles, paper, ceramics, and environments. They've made it so easy to implement that anyone can create interactive works of art. Program it directly from a web browser by holding it in front of a computer screen or phone. Connect it with conductive thread, conductive paint, or regular wire. The only limit is your imagination.

The Sparkle kit includes everything you need to add programmable flashing sequences of LEDs to your project. Simply sew the Sparkle board to your project and attach the included coin cell battery holder, sew your Lightboards in place with conductive thread and you're ready to program it. Alternate the LED directions (+ side up or down) so each turns on at different times and program the board using Aniomagic's online sequencer.

  • Sparkle Board
  • Battery Switch Board
  • Coin Cell Battery (CR2032)
  • 4 x "Diamond" White LED Lightboards

    It might be worth mentioning the "Diamond" White LED Lightboards included in this kit are different from the Diamond Lightboards ( that are sold separately.

  • As stated under the Aniomagic's site, you can use up to 20 LEDs in any color combination.

    Amazing! I have only one question, what should do I do if I want to wash it, should I do remove the battery?

    Worse than short now... "Video has been removed by user"

    Oh man, I might have to order one of these just to see if I can reverse-engineer that nifty "program it from the website" thing. It looks like it's all done client-side and they haven't obfuscated their Javascript code, so it shouldn't be too difficult.

  • We apologize for the video being cut a few seconds short, our talented videographer is out of town but he'll no-doubt have this fixed within minutes of his return.

      You may want to fix the embedded video on the product page. It appears to have been removed.
