Sparkle is an awesome programmable etextiles kit!

We love it because it's tasteful, beautiful, programmable, and tiny.

You don't have to install anything to get it to work. Simply connect a battery, and it starts to twinkle.

Program it with many different light patterns from a computer or smartphone, using a graphical Web interface.

Connect it to switches and explore elegantly programming your enhanced craft to twinkle when you touch, move, or sing.

The kits have all the pieces (except battery) already connected on a single board so you can start experimenting right away.

When you've got your program working the way you want, cut the pieces out and sew unto something fabulous!

 

With the Sparkle Touch Kit, you can have Sparkle normally display one flashing pattern, and then temporarily change to a different pattern when you press the switch.

With the Sparkle Motion Kit, you can have Sparkle normally turn off all lights, and then twinkle when you turn it upside down.

This is a simple tilt switch, not an accelerometer, so (unlike Chiclet) Sparkle can only detect if something is upside down, not how much it's tilted or how fast it's moving.
