When it comes to micro controllers most of us at NYC Resistor really love the ArduinoÃ¢â‚¬â€it’s fun, CHEAP, easy to use and it’s all the rage these days. So, when we found out about the new LilyPads ($19.95 from Sparkfun), wearable Arduino’s, you can imagine how excited we were. LilyPads are fully functional micro controllers that you can sew into clothing or any other type of interesting material. The board is based on the ATmega168V (the low-power version of the ATmega168). We’re currently working on some ideas and projects we can use our Lilypads for, right now we have a ‘belt that points north’ and a ‘heated jacket’ so we don’t have to worry about paying those heating bills this winter!
