We were introduced to the breadboard and were able to connect 5 LEDs on it using basic circuit techniques.

After the breadboard, we used the LillyPad processor and the example programs from arduino to program our first function: the BLINK! After that, we started to experiment with the template programs offered. We also managed to connect our first basic circuit with a switch!

After out basic attempt we came to create our first actual switch which was basically composed of regular fabric, foam and conductive fabric. Using Alligator clips we connected the switch to the LillyPad (and circuit) and we ended up with a practical switch that could help us turn our LED on and off.

Using handouts and a lot of help from our instructors, we constructed an analogue pressure sensor.

Now that we know our client, we had to brainstorm the main points we wanted to include on our product. We all pitched in and got a lot of ideas on what our "ideal product" would be.
