Making Things Tiny
In this last chapter, we will dig deeper into the IDE (integrated development environment) of the Arduino and focus on how to make your own “bare bones” microcontroller board. When it comes to wearables, size matters. As I have said before, the Arduino standard board is the best microcontroller I have found for making rapid prototypes with electronics. The LilyPad is great for when you have reached the point of making things wearable. But then there is the point where you want to finalize your project and leave things in place. These boards might be an unnecessary cost because you probably won’t use the entire functionality of the board.
So in this chapter we will introduce the use of a microcontroller called ...
