LilyTiny Plush Monster

Craft a glowing-eyed stuffed monster while exploring the LilyTiny preprogrammed microcontroller. This is a project based on the Tiny Monster Activity created at MIT’s High-Low Tech Lab by Emily Lovell, Jie Qi, and Natalie Freed. While the original monster activity uses one LED, this project will use two (or more) to light up the monster’s eyes. We’ll learn how to hook up the LilyTiny board, prototype with alligator clips, and plan a conductive thread circuit on a three dimensional project.

This is a great project to try after you’ve done a couple e-sewing projects and before you are ready to start programming a full LilyPad Arduino project.
