Whadda BrightDot Sewing kit for electronic wearables

Are you planning to connect your BrightDots by sewing them? Great! Because this kit includes everything you need to get started, conductive sewing thread, 20 different sewing needles, and thread fixator. Why choose sewing instead of soldering? Sewing the BrightDots onto the fabric ensures that your clothing or accessory stays flexible which makes it ideal if you are using thin fabrics for your project. However, sewing is a precise job so make sure that your sewing skills are on point and that you use the thread fixator to keep loose threads from creating a short circuit. The conductive sewing thread that is included in this set has been selected by our engineers and tested by our community to ensure a good connection and a positive experience while sewing. Be sure to read all our tips and tricks concerning the BrightDots on manuals.velleman.eu! Also, check out our neat BrightDot project tutorials like the BrightDot tie!

Velleman BrightDot Power & Fuse Pack VMW111

This set is all you need to power up your Brightdot projects or any other electronic circuit in a safe way.

Among other things, the set includes a battery pack for 3 x AA batteries with an onboard on/off switch and a connector wire to connect it to the wearable development board. To give you an idea; this battery pack can power a wearable development board and 10 twinkling BrightDot LEDs (not modules) on full brightness for more than 8 hours!

In order to keep your wearable project safe in case of shorting, you can add the fuse board to the circuit. This board will protect the batteries and thus prevent a fire hazard. Use the included connector cable to connect the fuse board to the development board and you're all set. Remember, you can never be too safe with electronics kits.

Some extra fuses are also included in case you 'fused up' the ones that are already onboard the fuse board.
