The LilyTiny is a small sewable breakout board for ATtiny85 microcontrollers – devices which may be integrated into circuits to enable pre-determined interactions such as lights that flash or areas that can sense touch. The circuit board can be pre-loaded with a program, enabling students to incorporate dynamic behaviors into e-textile projects without having to know how to program microcontrollers.

A tutorial for making Plush Monsters with the LilyTiny board is available here.
