Description: Replacement:DEV-11032. The new version of this kit comes with a fabric swatch which you can use to learn or teach e-sewing if you don\’t have something lying around to alter. This page is for reference only.

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 E-Sewing Kit pairs a LilyPad coin cell breakout board with a switch, a button, and five LEDs. It comes pre-wired so you can plug in a battery and use the switch and button to turn the LEDs on and off. Once you’ve mastered using the board together, break off the individual components and use them just like you would with their normal LilyPad counterparts.

The ProtoSnap E-Sewing Kit now includes a battery so you can start your project as soon as you open the box!

Note: We have noticed variations in hole spacing that can make the individual pieces hard to snap apart. If you have trouble snapping the pieces by hand a pair of scissors or wire snippers work like a charm.

  • How big is the resistor on the LED?

  • There was an photo of the final result of a shirt in a past news, can it be added to the preview shots on this product ?

    And how to wash the shirt if electronic’s sewed on it ^^ ? Could it be sewed on velcro hooks instead, and patch it on another velcro loops on the shirt ? ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Velcro ) I guess it might be sewed to anything… good idea !

    • Washing should be done gently, by hand, with the batteries removed. It is absolutely possible to make the shirt modular by sewing the electronics onto a separate piece that can be added and removed at will. If you’re adding electronics to a garment that needs to be washed often, that’s a great solution!
