The U Can’t Resistor Me Dress


For Day#3, I tried a wearable, and almost made it to completion. I hit a snag at the very end when my Lilypad Arduino would not upload. I am going to continue debugging to try and figure out why it will not upload programs. I began by selecting a pattern and cutting it out and sewing it up. pattern.jpg

Then I worked on the circuitry, which was just a few purple leds which will light up the darker the environment gets.  Everything worked great on the breadboard, but I could never get the Lilypad to upload (I consistently got an “initialization error”).

Here are some pictures of the finished dress before the circuitry was added, and details of the collar region with circuitry:


In these two pictures, you can see the green USB component to upload programs to the Lilypad. Unfortunately, this is where I hit a snag.

I will update this post when I get the Lilypad uploading properly.
