This is an adorable little kit that is a perfect introduction to wearable electronics. The heart of the kit is the heart shaped electronics board with 8 LEDS. It is easy to program and requires no wiring. The LEDs used are “smart” which means that it is easy to program all kinds of cool patterns from rainbows to a beating heart.
What is included
- 1 Lovey Dove Board
- Micro-controller (Adafruit Trinket)
- 8 Neopixels (Special RGB LEDs)
- 1 Battery Pack (batteries not included)
- USB Wire
Each Lovey Dov is pre-programed to light up in a pattern. To change the colour you will need to download the Arduino IDE software, libraries, and drivers. Don’t worry if this sounds a bit complicated we will walk you through the whole installation process.
