Workshop description: In this workshop we will experiment with adding bluetooth low energy capabilities to an e-textile project using the LilyPad Simblee board and Simblee app. SparkFun will showcase demo projects highlighting the capabilities of the Simblee board to examine and explore. For the hands-on portion of the workshop, each participant will receive a LilyPad Simblee, LilyPad Pixels (addressable RGB LEDs), and conductive thread to build into an interactive fabric swatch to take home and continue prototyping with. Participants are encouraged to bring their own fabrics or clothing items to build the circuit into.
