Here are a few tips for creating your e-textiles workshop and activities.
Angela from the Education Department visited F.I.T's Digital Spa Maker Camp to present a workshop on LilyPad and e-textiles.
Join us on May 27t for the next episode of "SparkFun Live!"
Spice up your fancy outfit with some flashy LEDs.
This installment of our new e-textiles how-to video series shows you how to incorporate LED string lights into your Halloween costume!
The dropping cost of LED bulbs is accelerating. We compare a few brands to see how they are approaching design and lower cost manufacturing.
We're offering a beginning LilyPad class next week - we'd love to see you there!
Make this great card for Father's Day, birthdays - or any occasion with a dash of DIY is the answer.
With some LEDs, some acrylic, and a little know-how, you can create your very own LED light box.
Want the coolest Halloween costume around? This is the class for you.
Our friend Stephanie Segall of Imagine Our Life shows us her recipe for a homemade LED robot costume.

We're keeping you stocked in LEDS as well as few other new products (like the MUX Shield - and an awesome example from Rojas!)
Learn how to build larger-than-life LED installations.
It's a known trick that we can use LEDs in reverse. We'll explore how to use them as photodetectors with Arduino and create a simple demo that responds to hand swipes.
Test your bare LEDs with a set of hacked tweezers - and don't worry about polarity!
Take prototyping to the next level with the ProtoSnap!
I've got a project on my workbench that I was hoping to share, but I met some unexpected difficulty along the way.

Director of Engineering Pete Dokter is back for another episode of "According to Pete"
The Hiking Hack is the first of a proposed series of research expeditions investigating the role of situated design for wild animal interaction. This mobile workshop through the Panamanian Rainforest was designed to explore how context shapes the crafting of technology and to probe the limits of constructing and utilizing DIY physical computing systems in harsh environments. It also served as a means of engaging with and reflecting upon the biological, technological and cultural aspects interplaying in modern scientific research.
Join us for a fun workshop at Wondercon in Anaheim!
New: A triple axis gyro, specialty IC hooks, AVC poster, bags of LEDs, Open Heart Kit, new (Sale) items, MIDI cable, and a fuse and fuse holder.
