  • If anyone is interested, I turned the bildr example into a library. It's still a little rough, but I've tested it on a pro mini and it seems to work.


  • For e-textiles, where having some sort of slidepot or other large input would be too unwieldy, it would be cool to use one of their softpots coupled with an LED bar-graph and controller that remembers the last value of the softpot and sets the bar graph accordingly, effectively replicating a slide potentiometer in a flexible form. In addition to setting the LEDs to show the value of the input, you could read the last value from the sensor as an analog value. One place I can see this being used is on some sort of control panel for a wearable project (like a volume slider on the sleeve, or adjusting the brightness of LEDs, etc.)
