Conductive Ribbon - 3-Conductor (1 yard)
Here we have some conductive ribbon. Essentially, it’s a fabric with 3 conductors woven into the ribbon. It measures roughly 0.2" wide and 0.03" thick. You will get a 1 yard (~3 foot long) section of ribbon. It has very little (negligible) resistance to it. The material is 68% tinsel and 32% polyester. Since it has 3 discrete conductors in it, you can transmit power, ground, and signal with a single ribbon! It’s relatively flexible and durable. As long as your iron isn’t too hot, it solders easily and makes for a good addition to any wearable electronics project. Documents: Datasheet ..

LilyPad Buzzer
This is a small buzzer for the LilyPad system. Use 2 I/O pins on the LilyPad main board and create different noises based on the different frequency of I/O toggling. Loud enough to hear inside a pocket but not obtrusively loud. Please note: This is an inductive buzzer meaning that is will act as a short to ground if you are not actively driving it. We recommend you put both I/O pins to low (0V) when the buzzer is not used. Also, it’s come to our attention that washing these buzzers will damage them. Until we’ve figured out a solution to this, avoid washing any portion of your project that co..

LilyPad Arduino USB - ATmega32U4 Board
The LilyPad Simple just got a whole lot… simpler. We’ve updated the Simple board to create the LilyPad USB by replacing the classic ATMega328 with the new ATMega32U4. Not only does that mean that it’s running a variation of the latest and greatest bootloader, but it also means no more FTDI Basic! The only extra piece of hardware you need to program the LilyPad USB is a micro-USB cable, since the new IC has built-in USB support. The LilyPad USB is also officially supported in the Arduino IDE as of version 1.0.2! Just like the LilyPad Simple, this board operates at 3.3V and features a JST sock..
