Getting Started with LilyPad
Programmed with Arduino
Have an idea for a custom project and ready to program? The LilyPad line has a variety of LilyPad Arduino microcontrollers to choose from, all compatible with free Arduino software.
The LilyPad ProtoSnap Plus is a great place to start prototyping a project — it includes seven LilyPad boards pre-wired to a LilyPad microcontroller for experimenting with code before you sew.
The LilyPad ecosystem also includes four stand-alone LilyPad controllers, the LilyPad Arduino USB, LilyPad Arduino 328 Main Board, LilyPad Arduino Simple Board, and LilyPad Arduino SimpleSnap. These controller boards can be connected to most of the LilyPad boards for light-up, sound-making, or sensing projects.
