LilyPad Reed Switch
The LilyPad Reed Switch is another kind of switch available in the LilyPad line. Unlike the other LilyPad switch offerings, the reed switch does not require you to touch the board to activate it. Inside the reed switch are two thin pieces of metal that are pulled in contact with each other when exposed to a magnetic field.
